As for providing water and fuel to the passing ships in the Persian Gulf, Saeednejad explained that since ensuring the sovereignty of the Islamic Republic of Iran in the waters under its jurisdiction would only be realized with the effective implementation and enforcement of international requirements, a national will would be necessary for promoting the maritime services provided by the country.

To that end, he referred to the efforts of PMO on participation in preparing and approving international maritime regulations and conventions, and stated that the interaction of the Iranian maritime administration with other regional states in this field was an” inevitable necessity”.
