BRUSSELS (Reuters) – NATO urged Iran on Wednesday to ensure the security of energy supplies through the Strait of Hormuz but said the Western military alliance had no plans to intervene in the area.

NATO Secretary-General Anders Fogh Rasmussen said in Brussels it was of “utmost importance to make sure energy supplies continue to flow through the vital waterway.”

“I would like to stress that the Iranian authorities have a duty to act as responsible international actors,” he told a news conference after meeting Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu. “NATO has no plans of intervention.”
