The statement comes shortly after Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif told reporters on Monday that the US, which is “alone in the world” had failed to create an allied naval coalition in the Persian Gulf.

UK Defence Minister Ben Wallace has announced that London would join a US-led maritime mission in the Persian Gulf to add to maintaining security in the area.

Reuters has, meanwhile, quoted an unnamed British security source as saying that the US-led mission would concentrate on ensuring security in the Gulf and that the UK doesn’t plan to join US sanctions against Iran.

Wallace's statement comes shortly after German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas reaffirmed his country's unwillingness to join a US-led maritime mission in the Strait of Hormuz.

At the same time, he added that the matter remains on the table but that convincing the EU to conduct such a mission will take time.

‘US is Alone in the World’ With Plans to Create Gulf Coalition

Maas spoke after Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif stated earlier on Monday that the US had failed to create an allied naval coalition in the Persian Gulf.
