Britain to send third warship to Gulf: Times reporter

LONDON (Reuters) - Britain will send a third warship and a navy tanker to the Persian Gulf but the move is not related to Iran crisis, a reporter at Britain’s Times newspaper reported.

“Type 23 frigate HMS Kent to deploy in Sept; RFA Wave Knight to arrive next month,” Times reporter Lucy Fisher said on Twitter.

The Ministry of Defence declined immediate comment.
