Britain accuses Iran of oil tanker 'breach'

UK condemns Iran over oil delivery to Assad regime

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".

Meanwhile, Kpler says that Iran also transfers oil cargos from one tanker to another in the middle of the sea, to avoid possible punishment.

"We will continue to put pressure on Iran and as President (Trump) said there will be no waivers of any kind for Iran's oil", Sigal Mandelker, US Treasury Under Secretary for Terrorism and Financial Intelligence, told reporters.

In a statement, the Chief Minister said the Iranian Government asserted ownership of the cargo via the National Iranian Oil Company, and said repeatedly that the oil aboard the vessel was not bound for Syria, including in written statements.

Britain accused Iran on Tuesday of breaching its assurances that a supertanker detained in Gibraltar for five weeks this summer would not transport oil to Syria, and summoned the Iranian ambassador to protest.

The UK insisted the tanker was seized only in pursuit of European Union sanctions policy, and not in support of the United States effort to cut off all Iranian oil exports, a strategy with which the UK does not agree.

"We want Iran to come in from the cold but the only way to do that is to keep its word and comply with the rules based worldwide system".

He said Gibraltar did its part in relation to the Grace 1 to stop the vessel when it did, and Iran will really make themselves look "shifty and unreliable if they have acted contrary to their repeated assertions and undertakings".

The ship was photographed off the coast of on Friday and is believed to have been carrying 2.1 million barrels of Iranian crude oil.

The Trump administration past year unilaterally pulled out of a 2015 nuclear deal between Tehran and Western powers, and is pursuing a campaign to bring Iran's exports to zero.
