UNITED STATES, WASHINGTON (VOP TODAY NEWS) — Iran has offered no guarantees to secure the release of its tanker held in Gibraltar, Tasnim news agency quoted a government spokesman as saying on Friday, stressing that the Grace 1 was not destined for Syria as its detainees claimed.
Gibraltar Prime Minister Fabian Picardo said the release order had been issued after written guarantees from Tehran that the ship would not unload its oil in Syria, in violation of EU sanctions.
