Audio conversation between crew of “Asphalt Princess” and UAE Coast Guard has been released. The crew is heard saying 5-6 Iranians with guns are on board.
IRANIAN Response to the audio:
— Not confirmed, and even if confirmed by the West, don’t trust it. Why would the ship’s operator specifically be saying that there are “armed Iranians”? Why would he care or how would he even know where they are from? The word “Iranians” is repeated two times in this clip, by the ship’s operator and the UAE coast guard. This seems like planted “evidence” to me.
