UK destroyer in PG: Message to Iran

Source: Press TV

Amid the anti-Iran war rhetoric, the British Royal Navy has dispatched its most advanced and sophisticated destroyer to the Persian Gulf.

The Ministry of Defense confirmed on Saturday that the one-billion-pound destroyer would join the British presence in the region.

The Telegraph claimed the vessel has been fitted with new technology in order to shoot down any missile in Iran's armory.

The new anti-Iran measure comes after the US is reportedly sending thousands of American troops, warships and weaponry to Israel for joint military maneuvers with Tel Aviv.

Commander of the US Third Air Force based in Germany Lt.-Gen Frank Gorenc described the deployment as not just an "exercise," but a "deployment."

The US and its Western allies have put more pressure on Iran following the release of the latest report by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) in November.

The IAEA accused Tehran of conducting activities related to developing nuclear weapons. Iran, however, strongly dismissed the allegations.

The war threats come after four rounds of US-backed sanctions imposed by the UN and unilateral sanctions by certain US allies failed to stop Iran's peaceful nuclear program.

Last week, Iran's Navy wrapped up massive 10-day military drills in the strategic Strait of Hormuz to show that the country is ready to defend itself against any attack.
