Presence of US warships in Persian Gulf, source of pollution

An official at the Department of Environment said the presence of the US aircraft carriers in the Persian Gulf is a source of pollution.

Abdolreza Karbasi, who is deputy head of the organiztion for marine affairs, told IRNA on Saturday that the aircraft, taking off from these warships, consume far more fuel causing pollution in the Persian Gulf.

The US navy has added another aircraft carrier warship to its fleet in Bahrain. It already had three warships stationed in the area.

Karbasi further noted that tens of sorties of flights by the American warplanes everyday will have adverse consequences for the Persian Gulf environment in the long-run.
