July 23 (Bloomberg) -- Iran won’t block the Strait of Hormuz as long as it has access to the waterway, the state-run Iranian Students News Agency reported, citing Ali-reza Tangsiri, deputy naval chief of the Revolutionary Guard Corps.

“Common sense does not recommend that Iran close the Strait of Hormuz as long as it is using it,” Tangsiri was cited as saying today in the port city of Bandar Abbas. “As long as Iran can use the Strait of Hormuz, others are free to pass through it.”
