Iran Says US Navy Vessel Fired Warning Shots

Whither Inflation Rate

The U.S. ships then left the area, according to the report.

"The Americans made a provocative and unprofessional move by issuing a warning and shooting flares at vessels", the statement said.

Iran's Revolutionary Guards said on Saturday that the US Navy had approached their patrol vessels in the Gulf and fired warning shots in what it called a provocative move.

In January, the USS Mahan fired shots toward Iranian fast-attack boats as they neared the destroyer in the Strait of Hormuz.

This incident followed further confrontation in the Gulf when a USA naval vessel fired warning shots at a Guards vessel as it closed in on the American boat, US officials said Tuesday.

IRNA said that on Saturday the USA forces "committed the same act" when it sent choppers toward Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps troops near the Resalat oil and gas field.

"U.S. naval forces attempted to establish communications, with no response from the Iranian vessels", the statement said.

Mr Trump in the past has blasted the Iran nuclear accord as "the stupidest deal of all time", but has certified to Congress that Iran is still complying with the terms of the agreement.

Earlier this week, the USS Thunderbolt patrol ship fired several warning shots at an Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps ship in the Gulf. But serious differences remain over Iran's ballistic missile programme and conflicts in Syria and Iraq.

"It is a breach of the deal in articles 26, 28 and 29", said Araghchi.

In remarks in June 2016, Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei underlined that security of the Persian Gulf region comes within the purview of the regional countries alone, and dismissed the United States claim of seeking security in the region.

Iran pledged to forge ahead with its missile program Saturday.

In a joint statement, they said that Iran's launch was "inconsistent" with a UN Security Council resolution that enshrined the nuclear deal.
