Reuters: France urged Iran on Wednesday to adhere to international law allowing freedom of navigation in the Strait of Hormuz after Tehran threatened to stop oil moving through the strategic shipping lane.

PARIS Dec 28 (Reuters) – France urged Iran on Wednesday to adhere to international law allowing freedom of navigation in the Strait of Hormuz after Tehran threatened to stop oil moving through the strategic shipping lane.

“We call on the Iranian authorities to respect international law and in particular the freedom to navigate international waters and straits,” French Foreign Ministry spokesman Bernard Valero said in a regular online news briefing on Wednesday .

“The Strait of Hormuz is an international strait. As a result, all ships regardless of their nationality benefit from the right of transit in line with the 1982 United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea and international maritime customs,” he added.
