Strait of Hormuz 0
14 July 2020

CENTCOM Commander Kenneth McKenzie remarked that “we always look very carefully at threats to navigation through the Strait of Hormuz… through entities such as the International Maritime Security Construct, we’re able to ensure that commerce passes unimpeded and we’re able to shine a spotlight on malign activities that occur”. He added: “for the past several months it’s been pretty quiet, and we’re glad, and I believe that is actually due in large measure to the International Maritime Security Construct and to the flow of information, intelligence and knowledge that it’s allowed to pass between states that are pushing cargos through the Strait of Hormuz”.
