Lebanon News

The Iranian ambassador in London accused the United States of desperately trying to stop the authorities in Gibraltar from releasing the Grace 1 Iranian oil tanker, saying the American effort had been defeated.

 

"America desperately tried to block the release of the tanker at the last minute, but faced a miserable defeat," the ambassador, Hamid Baeidinejad, said in a tweet in Farsi.

 

"All preparations are done for the tanker to sail into open waters, and the vessel will soon leave Gibraltar."
