UK might release seized oil tanker soon, says Iran

Iran’s port authority has said the UK might free its seized oil tanker after some documents were exchanged that would help secure its release. British Royal Marines last month seized the vessel off the shore of Gibraltar on suspicion it carried Iranian crude oil to Syria in breach of European Union sanctions against the government of Syrian President Bashar al Assad. “Britain is interested in releasing Iran’s oil tanker Grace 1 … following the exchange of some documents, we hope the release will take place soon,” Jalal Eslami, deputy head of Iran’s Ports and Maritime Organization, was quoted as saying by IRNA news agency.
