Iran to release captured British tanker

Iranian tanker ‘sells’ oil in defiance of US threats

Iranian tanker ‘sells’ oil in defiance of US threats

"We had already announced that we would sell our oil in any way and that acts of sabotage would not affect our plans", he added. As Bloomberg reports, Tehran is engaged in a cat-and-mouse game with tanker-tracking firms around the world that have developed new strategies for monitoring Iran's "Dark Fleet".

Washington also blocked the Islamic Republic from selling crude oil, a crucial source of income for the country.

Gibraltar released the ship - formerly called the Grace 1 but since renamed the Adrian Darya 1 - on August 18 after receiving written assurances from Iran that it would not head to countries under European Union sanctions.

Tehran, however, rejected London's claim about the tanker's destination and slammed the seizure as "piracy".

After the Iranian vessel left Gibraltar, US authorities issued a warrant seeking to blacklist the vessel and blacklist any country that offered it aid. After the two sides detained each other's ships for more than one month, the British territory released the Iranian tanker last month.

Brian Hook, the USA special envoy for Iran, also has reportedly emailed or texted captains of Iranian oil tankers, trying to scare them into not delivering their cargo. Last week, U.S. media sources suggested that the captain of the vessel was offered millions of dollars to lead the ship in a location where USA authorities could seize it.

Yelich leads Brewers to win over Cubs
Cubs shortstop Javy Baez's MRB revealed a hairline fracture on his left thumb that he suffered last Sunday against the Brewers . That's a devastating blow for a team 2.5 games out of first place and only 2.0 games up in the Wild-Card standings.

A tanker suspected of trying to deliver Iranian oil to Syria in defiance of worldwide sanctions has now sold its cargo, Iran says.

The ship has been at the centre of a US-Iran diplomatic tussle. Stop nagging @SecPompeo: "We will sell oil to any & all buyers", Zarif said.

The spokesman further emphasized that the United States measures against the supertanker are contrary to worldwide regulations, including the law of the sea and regulations of the global Maritime Organization (IMO).

Iran's Foreign Ministry said: 'I hope the procedures will be completed soon and this tanker will be released'.

Iran detained the Stena Impero on July 19 on the allegations that it had violated the maritime regulations while passing through the Strait of Hormuz.

The British-flagged oil tanker seized by Iran could be released after the imminent completion of legal proceedings against the tanker, Iranian state television reported on Sunday, Trend reports citing Reuters.
