 Iranian official calls Gulf-US alliance "doomed"

The alliance planned by the United States to protect ships passing through the Strait of Hormuz is "doomed to fail", the head of Iran's parliament's National Security and Foreign Policy Committee told Mehr News on Wednesday.

Now they think the coalition will be in response to the critical warnings of our defense forces, but Iran, under any circumstances, will show any flexibility for them," the Iranian official said. Only countries in the region can provide security for each other and the United States cannot influence the situation, Rezai said.

The UK and Israel agreed to participate in the coalition, while Germany and Japan said they would not be part of the operations.
