An Iranian Islamic Revolution Guard Corps (IRGC) commander announced on Monday that Iran is ready to help curb oil leak in Mexico Gulf, the local ISNA news agency reported.

General Rostam Qasemi, commander of IRGC's Khatam al-Anbiya construction headquarters, said Monday that experts of the headquarters are ready to curb oil leak in Mexico Gulf, the report said.

"Following failure of the United States and Britain to end oil spill, experts of (Khatam al-Anbiya) headquarters are ready for management of the catastrophe," Qasemi was quoted as saying.

"It is humiliating that the U.S., Britain and those who claim they are economic and industrial superpowers have failed to curb oil leak in Mexico Gulf after two months," said Qasemi.

"If the U.S., Britain and western corporations think that they will not succeed in controlling the issue and if (they) ask Iran for help, we can station our experts to the location to end the environmental catastrophe," ISNA quoted him as saying.
