The Iranian Revolutionary Guard members have offered to help Barack Obama with the Gulf oil slick.
Fars News reported:
Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Ramin Mehman-Parast underlined Tehran’s technical capability to help the US control the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, and said Tehran is ready to study Washington’s request for help in this regard.
“The issue will be studied if the US administration asks for it,” Mehman-Parast said in his weekly press conference here in Tehran today, stressing that Iran has the required expertise and skillful human resources in this ground.
The spokesman said that resolving the problem of the oil spill and the resulting slick in the Gulf of Mexico is a humanitarian issue that encourages all countries to provide the necessary aids to reduce the vast and drastic effects of the incident on the environment.
The remarks by Mehman-Parast came a day after The Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) announced that its experts are prepared to control the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.
“The experience of Iranians’ presence in curbing oil spills in a number of neighboring states in the Persian Gulf, such as Kuwait, demonstrates Iranian capabilities and skills and the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps is ready to help curb the oil spill (in the Gulf of Mexico),” Commander of the IRGC’s Khatam ol-Anbia Headquarters General Rostam Qassemi stated.
Qassemi reminded the environmental threat posed by the oil spill to the Caribbean states and nations, and stated, “Despite new sanctions, the IRGC is prepared to fulfill its humanitarian duty in this regard and use its exclusive and indigenous capability in the Gulf of Mexico.”
Take a number guys… The Obama Adminstration has only accepted help from 5 of 28 countries that offered to assist with the disaster. The others are still under review.
