Iranian ambassador says oil tanker expected to leave Gibraltar tonight

by

Dubai-Iran’s ambassador to Britain said the Iranian tanker Adrian Darya 1, formerly known as Grace 1, caught in a stand-off between Tehran and the West is expected to leave the British territory of Gibraltar on Sunday night.

“With the arrival of two specialized engineering teams to Gibraltar … the vessel is expected to leave tonight,” Hamid Baeidinejad said on Twitter.

British Royal Marines seized the vessel in Gibraltar in July on suspicion that it was carrying oil to Syria, a close ally of Iran, in violation of European Union sanctions.
