South Korea plans to join a US-led naval force in the Middle East with a devastating naval unit to help protect oil tankers as it crosses the Strait of Hormuz, a South Korean newspaper said on Monday.
Tensions between Iran and the United States have grown since Washington withdrew from Iran's nuclear deal last year and re-imposed sanctions on Tehran.
The vulnerability of oil tankers in the Strait of Hormuz off the coast of Iran in recent months has further deteriorated relations, prompting US officials to call on allies to join a planned mission to protect maritime security.
South Korea has decided to send the Cheongai anti-piracy unit operating in waters off Somalia, possibly with helicopters, the Maikeong newspaper quoted an unnamed senior government official as saying.
The South Korean Defense Ministry said the government was considering ways to protect its ships in the region but no decision was made. "We obviously have to protect our ships in crossing the Strait of Hormuz, is not it?" Said Deputy Spokesman Rowe Cheeon during a regular press briefing on Monday. So we look at different possibilities. "
Last week, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Washington had asked South Korea, Japan, France, Germany, Australia and other countries to participate.
US national security adviser John Bolton-Sol visited Seoul last week and discussed the issue with senior officials, including the defense minister, but Roe said no formal request had been made at the meeting.
The Cheongai Unit has been stationed in the Gulf of Aden since 2009 and works to combat piracy with African countries as well as the United States and the European Union.
According to a South Korean defense report in 2018, the 302-strong contingent includes a destroyer, an anti-submarine anti-submarine helicopter and three speedboats.
