(Worthy News) - Tehran warned Tuesday that Britain’s seizure of an Iranian oil tanker will not go “unanswered” after denying earlier in the week that the ship detained in Gibraltar was carrying crude to Syria, which would put it in violation of EU sanctions.
According to the semi-official Tasnim news agency, cited by Reuters, Iran’s armed forces chief of staff, Major General Mohammad Bagheri, said that Iran would respond if necessary to the ship’s detention.
“Capture of the Iranian oil tanker based on fabricated excuses … will not be unanswered and when necessary Tehran will give an appropriate answer,” Bagheri said. [ Source: Times of Israel (Read More...) ]
