  • I want to apprise everyone of an incident in the Strait of Hormuz today involving USS Boxer, a Navy amphibious assault ship.

  • The Boxer took defensive action against an Iranian drone, which had closed into a very, very near distance - approximately 1,000 yards, ignoring multiple calls to stand down and was threatening the safety of the ship and the ship's crew.

  • The drone was immediately destroyed.

  • This is the latest of many provocative and hostile actions by Iran against vessels operating in international waters.

  • The United States reserves the right to defend our personnel, our facilities, and interests.

  • And calls upon all nations to condemn Iran's attempts to disrupt freedom of navigation and global commerce.

  • I also call on other nations to protect their ships as they go through the Strait and to work with us in the future.

  • Thank you very much.

  • I thought you should know that.
