"The Persian Gulf is a platform for cooperation and coexistence among regional countries and the Iranian nation and government has always been ready for this, and now, amid this global crisis, we are readier," Jahangiri wrote.

“Iran with its long coastlines has a key role in keeping the security of this region. By God’s grace we will do our part. This is our historical, geographical and regional duty,” said one of the tweets, which were posted on the occasion of the National Persian Gulf Day.
