The Iranian Foreign Ministry said on Saturday that Iran has forwarded a peace plan over the Strait of Hormuz to the regional states, official IRNA news agency reported.

The full text of the Hormuz Peace Initiative has been sent to the members of the Gulf Cooperation Council as well as Iraq, said the ministry spokesman Abbas Mousavi.

Iran's move indicates its seriousness in preserving the stability and security of the Gulf region, Mousavi noted.

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif will also send a letter to the UN Secretary General in this regard, he added.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani disclosed the initiative at the recent meeting of the 74th UN General Assembly.

Rouhani said Iran's Hormuz Peace Initiative aims at establishing durable peace in the region.

Iran insists that extra-regional powers cannot bring peace to the region, which could be established through regional states' cooperation.
