Iran says it sold oil tanker released by Gibraltar

UNITED STATES, WASHINGTON (OBSERVATORY) — Iran has sold oil to the tanker released by the Gibraltar government after being seized by the British Royal Navy for several weeks and the owner of the tanker will decide on its next destination, a government spokesman was quoted as saying on Monday.

The spokesman did not identify the buyer. After Gibraltar’s release of Adrian Daria on August 18, the United States said it would take every possible measure to prevent it from delivering oil to Syria, which was the original reason for its detention, in violation of US sanctions.

Navigation data from Refinitiv Akon on Monday showed that the tanker, which was at the center of a crisis between Washington and Tehran, was no longer registered as heading for Turkey, which was its destination at the weekend.
