Iran tanker leaves Gibraltar after British territory rejects US demand

London, Aug 19 (UNI) The Iranian oil tanker seized by Britain for weeks, left Gibraltar for international waters on Monday, after the British overseas territory rejected a US demand to seize the vessel.
"At this point, we confirm that the Iranian oil tanker began to move towards international waters," Iran's Ambassador to Britain Hamid Baeidinejad tweeted.
According to Al Jazeera, data from ship-tracking service MarineTraffic showed that the Iran-flagged Adrian Darya 1, new name for the captured Grace 1 oil tanker, set sail shortly before midnight on Sunday towards international waters. It has a cargo of at least 130 million dollar worth of light crude oil.

On Thursday, the authorities of Gibraltar ordered the release of the tanker after more than 40 days in detention.


British Royal Marines had seized the tanker on July 4 on suspicion of transporting oil to Syria, a close ally of Iran, in violation of EU sanctions.

The decision came after Gibraltar's government said that it had received written assurances from Iran that the ship would not be headed for countries 'subject to European Union sanctions.' However, Tehran has denied that it has made any promises.
