Tanker Capture


Unshakable UK Decides to Release Captured Iranian Tanker for 48 Hours

In Britain, they were frightened of Iran’s words about their readiness to seize any ship in the Persian Gulf and released the previously captured Iranian oil tanker.

Despite statements by the UK that the Iranian oil tanker violated EU sanctions and transported oil to Syria (arms were originally supposed to be transported - ed.), In connection with which its capture was justified, it became known that "the iron London’s will, as announced by the British media, unexpectedly weakened - the captured Grace 1 tanker will be released within the next 48 hours.

Given the fact that the Iranian oil tanker was released without any complaints, experts strongly doubted that the British military really had any authority to stop and seize the Iranian tanker. This, according to analysts, led only to the aggravation of the situation in the Middle East, however, by no means in favor of London.

At the moment, it remains unknown whether Tehran, the previously captured British tanker Stena Impero, will be released in response to the actions of London, however, experts say that it will take several months to normalize the situation in the Persian Gulf.
