The commander of the Quds Force in the Iranian Revolutionary Guards, Qasem Soleimani, praised Iranian President Hassan Rouhani’s statements on the threat of regional oil exports if sanctions were imposed on Iran’s oil exports.
According to IRNA, Soleimani said in a letter to Rouhani on Wednesday that the Revolutionary Guard “is ready to implement a policy that hinders regional oil exports if the United States bans Iranian oil sales”.
This comes after Rouhani threatened on Tuesday during his visit to Switzerland to block oil shipments from neighboring countries.
Soleimani added that the Revolutionary Guard is prepared to implement such a policy if necessary. He said: “I kiss your hands after you have made these wise and timely statements, and I am at your service to implement any policy that serves the Islamic Republic”.
