yes confirmed, but they have been doing a bit of circling and zizags around the place. Waiting for permission to proceed I guess

I thought that Egypt had declined to the ships would pass through the Suez, What have I missed??? Janey!

Looks like it is official now. Iran just officially submitted its request to Egypt for its 2 ships to transit the Suez.

From Ynet:

Egypt: Iran asks for warships to pass Suez Canal

2/17/11

Two Iranian naval vessels have submitted a request to transit the Suez Canal, Egypt's Foreign Ministry confirmed on Thursday. Israel has expressed concerns over the plans, labeling them a "provocation."

Ministry spokesman Hossam Zaki said Egyptian authorities have received the request to grant the vessels passage, while a Suez Canal official said the Defense Ministry would process the application. In Tehran, Iran's official English-language Press TV cited an Iranian naval official saying the two warships are to pass through the canal. The official said Tehran was in contact with Egypt about the ships. (AP)

On the news now say Egypt can't prevent Iran access to Suez canal unless the country was at war. They also talked about the oil producing ME countries, make up 60% or the world's oil reserves and these are ones having signs that revolution might affect them.

What I want to know is how did Mubarak get around this law before?

If the policy is to let everyone through unless they are at war with them how comes Iran didnt get through the Suez before?

Acording to Debka they are already past it!

Twenty-four hours after Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak said the Egyptian upheaval had no military connotations for Israel, the Iranian frigate Alvand and cruiser Kharg transited the Suez Canal on their way to Syria Wednesday night, Feb. 16. Their passage was termed “a provocation” by Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman. In Beirut, Hizballah leader Hassan Nasrallah said he was looking forward to Israel going to war on Lebanon because then his men would capture Galilee.

The Iranian Navy has traditionally been the smallest branch of Iran's armed forces and is designed mainly for securing its own ports and coast, with little in the way of striking power.

Ahmed al-Manakhly, a senior Suez Canal official, said international agreements regulate the traffic through the canal. He said that only in the case of war with Egypt may vessels be denied transit through the waterway.

Al-Manakhly noted that Iran and Egypt are not at war, and said the final decision on whether to grant the vessels' passage lies with the Defense Ministry. He said he will not allow any warships to transit the canal without approval from the Defense Ministry.
