    Pompeo to the British .. Protect your ships yourselves .. Do not want war with Iran

    BAGHDAD (Reuters) - US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said the protection of British ships was the responsibility of the kingdom itself.

    In an interview with Fox News on Monday, Pompeo, commenting on the case of Iran's seizure of the British oil tanker Stena Impero, said the protection of British ships was a "task" for the United Kingdom.

    The US Secretary of State stressed that his country does not want any war with Iran, knowing that the United States has already made repeated threats to the Islamic Republic against the backdrop of the detention of the British ship.

    The Iranian Revolutionary Guards announced on July 19 that the British-flagged British tanker Stena Impero was being held in the Strait of Hormuz, saying the ship had not complied with international navigation laws, turned off tracking devices and crashed into a fishing boat there.

    The Revolutionary Guard said that the carrier was directed to the Iranian coasts and handed over to the Iranian Ports and Navigation Organization to begin investigations and the completion of legal stages.

    This incident came after the British Marines captured on 4 July the Iranian Grace 1 tanker by the waters of Gibraltar claiming it was heading to Syrian territory, which opposes the European sanctions against Damascus.

    On July 11, Britain announced that three Iranian vessels had tried to intercept a British tanker as it passed through the Strait of Hormuz, which controls the flow of oil from the Middle East to the world. But these ships withdrew after warnings from a British Royal Navy vessel. Tehran denies all these allegations.

    Pompeo suggests Iran may be lying about arrests of CIA spies

     

    By QUINT FORGEY

     

    07/22/2019 06:28 AM EDT

     

    Updated 07/22/2019 07:48 AM EDT

    Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Monday cast doubt on Iran's claim that it had arrested a group of CIA spies, contending that the Islamic Republic "has a long history of lying."

    "It's part of the nature of the Ayatollah to lie to the world," Pompeo told Fox News. "I would take with a significant grain of salt any Iranian assertion about actions that they've taken."

     

    The secretary of state, who previously served as the director of the CIA, did not directly address Iran's claim that it had captured U.S. spies.

    Iran announced earlier in the day that it has arrested 17 Iranian nationals allegedly recruited by the Central Intelligence Agency to spy on the country’s nuclear and military sites, and that some of them have already been sentenced to death.

    The arrests took place over the past months and those taken into custody worked on “sensitive sites” in the country’s military and nuclear facilities, an Iranian intelligence official told a press conference in Tehran.

    He did not say how many of them got the death sentence nor when the sentences were handed down.

    Asked about the reported arrests, Pompeo said he "can't add much to it specifically," but "would urge everyone who’s reading that story waking up to understand that the Iranian regime has a long history of lying."

    The announcement from Tehran comes as Iran’s nuclear deal with world powers is unraveling and tensions have spiked in the Persian Gulf region. The crisis stems from President Donald Trump’s decision to pull the United States out of Tehran’s deal last year and intensify sanction on the country.

    The Iranian official did not give his name but was identified as the director of the counterespionage department of Iran’s Intelligence Ministry. Such a procedure is highly unusual in Iran; officials usually identify themselves at press conferences. It is also rare for intelligence officials to appear before the media.

    The official claimed that none of the 17, who allegedly had “sophisticated training,” had succeeded in their sabotage missions. Their spying missions included collecting information at the facilities they worked at, carrying out technical and intelligence activities and transferring and installing monitoring devices, he said.

    The official further claimed the CIA had promised those arrested U.S. visas or jobs in America and that some of the agents had turned and were now working with his department “against the U.S.”

    He also handed out a CD with a video recording of an alleged foreign female spy working for the CIA. The disc also included names of several U.S. Embassy staff in Turkey, India, Zimbabwe and Austria who Iran claims were in touch with the recruited Iranian spies.

    Occasionally, Iran announces detentions of spies it says are working for foreign countries, including the U.S. and Israel. In June, Iran said it executed a former staff member of the Defense Ministry who was convicted of spying for the CIA.

    In April, Iran said it uncovered 290 CIA spies both inside and outside the country over the past years.

    The Associated Press contributed to this report.

  8. Iran says breaks up CIA spy ring, some sentenced to death

    Iranian television said they caught a CIA spying ring

    Tension between Iran and the west are spiralling lately after the capture of tankers

    DUBAI: Iran captured 17 spies working for the US Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) and some have been sentenced to death, Iranian media reported on Monday.
    Iranian state television published images it said showed the CIA officers who were in touch with the suspected spies.
    There was no immediate comment on the Iranian allegations by the CIA or US officials.
    Iran announced in June that it had broken up an alleged CIA spy ring but it was unclear whether Monday’s announcement was linked to the same case.
    The announcement comes after three months of spiralling confrontation between Iran and the West that began when new tighter US sanctions took effect in May.
    Last week Iran captured a British tanker after Britain’s Royal Marines seized an Iranian tanker on July 4.
    In a statement read on state television, the Ministry of Intelligence said 17 spies were arrested during the Iranian calendar year that ended in March 2019.
    “The identified spies were employed in sensitive and vital private sector centers in the economic, nuclear, infrastructure, military and cyber areas... where they collected classified information,” read the ministry statement.
    In a separate report, the semi-official Fars news agency quoted a Ministry of Intelligence official as saying some of those arrested had been sentenced to death.

    Ethel Nujaifi: Christian complaints behind the US sanctions against the promise of Qadu

    BAGHDAD (Reuters) - The leader of a party in Iraq, Ethel al-Nujaifi, said on Sunday that Christian complaints of US sanctions against the commander of the 30-strong Popular Front had been promised by Qadu.

    "The subject of US sanctions is not new and concerns the conditions set by America when it contributed to the war against the Da'ash in Iraq," Nujaifi said in an interview with Alsumaria. "America had several conditions, including that the popular crowd should not enter Mosul by agreement between Government and America. " 

    "These sanctions have been initiated by the United States to reduce the influence of those close to Iran in areas that have been exposed to terrorism," he said. 

    He pointed out that "there are complaints by Christians against the promise of Qadu, as well as complaints by human rights organizations." 

    Last Thursday, the US Treasury Department announced sanctions on four Iraqi figures - Ahmad al-Jubouri, Rayyan al-Chaldani, Nawfal al-Akoub and Abu Jaafar al-Hatti.

  19. Iran eyes 'toll' on all ships passing through Strait of Hormuz

    By Ben Wolfgang - The Washington Times - Sunday, July 21, 2019

    Iranian lawmakers on Sunday said they believe their country should impose a “toll” on all ships that pass through the vital Strait of Hormuz.

    The proposal comes just 48 hours after Iran’s Revolutionary Guard (IRGC) seized a British oil tanker traveling through the Strait, a key shipping channel in the region. In a statement Sunday, a group of Iranian lawmakers praised the move and said Tehran should go even further in exercising control over the Strait.

    “We support the IRGC Navy’s proper and firm measure to seize an offending British oil tanker and ask the IRGC to continue its path firmly and powerfully,” the Iranian lawmakers said, as quoted by the Fars News Agency. “Finally, we urge the honorable government and president to put on its agenda the issue of collecting toll from the ships which pass through the Strait of Hormuz.”

    After the Trump administration earlier this year imposed a full embargo on exports of Iranian oil, Tehran has targeted foreign vessels sailing through the strait. In addition to detaining multiple ships, the U.S. has alleged that Iran carried out a series of limpet mine attacks on oil tankers.

    The British ship seized on Friday, the Stena Impero, remains in Iranian custody at the country’s Port of Bandar Abbas. There were 23 crew members on board, and Iranian officials said Sunday they are all in good health.



    The company that owns the ship, Stena Bulk, said it is crafting a “formal request” to visit the crew and ensure they’re safe.

    Meanwhile, British officials said the country will weigh economic sanctions against Iran in response to the ship seizure.

    “This is a hostile act, let’s not dodge away from that. This is a serious matter which Iran must recognize,” U.K. Defense Minister Tobias Ellwood told Sky News over the weekend. “We’re looking at the operational responsibilities from that but, yes, we are going to be looking at a series of options.”

    The ship detainment comes on the heels of the U.S. military last week shooting down an Iranian drone over international waters, an incident that ratcheted up tensions between the two sides even higher.

  21. The disappearance of one billion euros in Iran for import

     2019/07/21 00:20:01

     

    The head of the office of Iranian President Hassan Rowhani said in a speech to ministers of industry, agriculture and public health that one billion euros ($ 1.12 billion) earmarked for importing drugs and commodities had "disappeared".

    Mahmoud Faisi, head of the office of the Iranian presidency, asked in the letter to explain what happened to the imports promised by those who received foreign currency at the government exchange rate, the Jerusalem Post reported Sunday.

    Due to the sharp devaluation of the Iranian currency in recent years, the government now allocates foreign currencies at cheaper exchange rates for importers of medicines, foodstuffs, raw materials and other commodities that are already approved.

    These importers are obliged to purchase and transport goods previously approved to Iran.

    The official exchange rate in Iran is 42,000 riyals against the dollar, but the market price is about 130,000 riyals against the dollar at the beginning of July, according to the Jerusalem Post.

    The official price is aimed at protecting Iranian consumers from sharp jumps in prices because of US sanctions on Iran.

    But Vaisy said about 849 million euros earmarked for the import of "commodities" and another $ 130 million earmarked for drugs, which were granted to companies, had "disappeared", according to the daily Al Sharq.

    He accused 20 companies of not importing the goods they promised to bring to the country legally.

    The head of the presidential office also sent the letter to the Central Bank of Iran and demanded legal action on the issue.

    Health Minister Said Namaki has reportedly arrested a group of ministry officials for complicity in corruption plots involving the import of medicines and medical equipment, the Jerusalem Post said.

    Some importers had received 2 million euros to import heart pumps, but they instead imported electric cables and fled the country, he said.

    Earlier in July, Radio Farda reported that Iran had spent government funds earmarked for essential medical supplies on cigarette imports.

    $ 170 million has been allocated from the government-subsidized currency to import tobacco, while another $ 16 million has been allocated for the import of cigarette paper, according to Deputy Health Minister Alireza Reissi.

    The money was supposed to be spent on the import of basic medical supplies, al-Rissi said.
