«The seizure of two ships by Iranian authorities in the Strait of Hormuz is of deep concern. In an already tense situation, this development brings risks of further escalation and undermines ongoing work to find a way to resolve current tensions,» the statement reads.

«We urge the immediate release of the remaining ship and its crew, and call for restraint to avoid further tensions. Freedom of navigation must be respected at all times,» the document reads.

Recall that the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps informed of seizure of the British tanker in the Strait of Hormuz on Friday.
