ABU DHABI, July 2 (Xinhua) -- U.S. Navy Fifth Fleet Commander Kevin Cosgriff said Wednesday the United States will not allow Iran to close the Strait of Hormuz, which lies between Iran and the Arab Peninsula in the southeast of the Persian Gulf. At a meeting of naval commanders of Gulf countries, Cosgriff said recent statements from Iranian officials that they would block trade passing through the Gulf if the country was attacked were an "international affront," according to local news website thenational.ae.
