Iran’s defense minister has warned the US of a firm response if it continues to harass the country’s ships and oil tankers in international waters. 

Brigadier General Amir Hatami described US acts of harassment at high seas as piracy. He said such moves are against international law. Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif had earlier warned against the US provocative acts through dispatching its naval forces to the Caribbean Sea with the goal of disrupting the course of Iranian tankers carrying fuel for Venezuela. Iran is shipping tons of gasoline to Venezuela in defiance of US sanctions on both countries.
