US vessel carrying chemicals docked in regional waters

TEHRAN, Jul. 1 (MNA) – A senior spokesman for the Iranian Armed Forces reported the docking of a US cargo vessel carrying chemicals at the coast of a Persian Gulf littoral state, warning about a dangerous plot for US presence in Iraq and Syria.

Brigadier General Abolfazl Shekarchi, a senior spokesman for the Iranian Armed Forces, said Sunday that a US cargo vessel carrying chemicals escorted by an American warship has recently entered regional waters.

“Checking the records of the US cargo vessel MV Cape Ray revealed that the vessel had been present in the coasts near Iraq and Syria where the Americans had launched a military aggression under the pretext of the use of chemical weapons by those countries,” he said.

He went on to add that the US vessel has entered regional waters with an aim to deploy the chemicals to some parts of Iraq and Syria.   

“We have more accurate details about the US vessel, such as the number of the crew members and the chemicals cargo in their possession, that will be disclosed to the public in the future,” he added.
