"Discourse about closing the Strait of Hormuz belongs to five years ago. Today's debate in the Islamic Republic of Iran contains new layers and the time has not come to raise it," Gen. Masoud Jazayeri said in comments posted Saturday on the Guard's website, sepahnews.com.

The West recently imposed new sanctions over Tehran's uranium enrichment program, which is a potential pathway to making nuclear arms.

If we were able to make up the difference with domestically produced oil, it would diminish or eliminate Iran's upper hand.
