Japan tells ships to be more vigilant in Hormuz Strait

Japan issued an advisory to the shipping industry to be "sufficiently alert" when passing through the Strait.

The Japanese transport ministry has issued an advisory to Japanese ships transiting the Strait of Hormuz to be more alert, a source familiar with the issue said on Friday.

The ministry issued an advisory to the shipping industry to be “sufficiently alert” when passing through the Strait, especially calling for vigilance at night regarding movements of small ships, the source told Reuters.

The strategic waterway is the gateway to the oil-producing Gulf and handles 40 percent of the world’s seaborne oil.

The ministry has called on the industry to strengthen its own security measures, the source said.

The move follows a similar advisory issued by the United States earlier this month after a Japanese tanker operated by Mitsui O.S.K. Lines was damaged near the waterway by an apparent explosion in late July.

The source said the cause of the damage was not yet known.
