Iran Says its Oil Tanker Discharged Cargo

Monday 9 September 2019

TEHRAN (Press TV) — The spokesman for Iran’s Foreign Ministry says despite “all acts of sabotage” by the United States, the Iranian tanker Adrian Darya 1 has discharged its oil cargo and is now berthing at a Mediterranean port.

Gibraltar released the Iranian vessel on Aug. 15 after receiving formal written assurances from Tehran that the ship would not discharge its 2.1 mln barrels of oil in Syria. However, the Iranian oil tanker renamedAdrian Darya 1 has been photographed by satellite off the Syrian port of Tartus, Maxar Technologies Inc., a U.S. space technology company said on Saturday.

Washington has warned any state against assisting the ship, saying it would consider that support for a terrorist organisation, namely, Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps. The U.S. Treasury Department blacklisted the tanker on Friday.
