UK condemns Iran over oil delivery to Assad regime

It was suspected of shipping its 2.1 million barrels of oil to Syria in breach of European Union sanctions.

Mr Picardo said if the reports are true, it will render worthless the written word of the Government of Iran on all matters, and the world will be better placed to judge Iran's position on other, more transcendental matters based on actions on this issue on which they have been under the microscope of worldwide scrutiny.

"On Tuesday, the Gibraltar Government said it was aware of reports suggesting tanker had discharged its cargo in Syria".

The US has said they would impose sanctions on any buyer of the oil.

"Before that, however, we should await a formal statement from the Government of Iran or the National Iranian Oil Company".

The ship, which was named Grace 1, was stopped by British Royal Marine commandos off Gibraltar on July 4 and in retaliation Iran seized a British-flagged tanker in the Strait of Hormuz two weeks later.

Iranian Foreign Ministry Abbas Mousavi has been quoted saying the ship has unloaded its cargo, without elaborating.

Juul's failure to get such authorization, the FDA said, means that the company sold and marketed "adulterated" products. During the presentation, the students said the representative told them the company's product was "totally safe ".

It said Britain would raise the issue at the United Nations, with Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab warning that it was part of a "pattern of behaviour. created to disrupt regional security".

Washington had warned Mediterranean countries that any co-operation with the tanker would be treated as support for terrorism.

The US then issued a warrant for the ship to be seized, naming it among a network of tankers which it said were being used by Iran's Revolutionary Guards to transport oil to Syria.

Tensions between the USA and Iran have been high since Donald Trump pulled out of the Iran nuclear deal.

Since this Trump has re-imposed sanctions, which have crippled the Iranian economy.

Britain is pursuing a policy of maximum economic pressure on Iran in a bid to force Tehran to renegotiate the nuclear deal the joint comprehensive plan of action nuclear deal signed in 2015.
