  • Iran says Britain might release Grace 1 oil tanker soon

British Royal Marines seized the Iranian oil tanker Grace 1 near Gibraltar on July 4, claiming it was transporting oil to Syria, in violation of European Union sanctions, which Iran denies.

The UK has seized Iran's supertanker deliberately, he deplored, adding that the documents on the settlement of the issue have already been exchanged between Iran and the UK.

Iran said on Tuesday that Britain might free its oil tanker Grace 1 soon in a maritime saga that has exacerbated frictions between Tehran and the West.

Tehran maintains that the supertanker was not bound for Syria and its seizure has taken place at the behest of the US.

IRNA news agency report Jalil Eslami, deputy head of Iran's Ports and Maritime Organisation, as claiming that a breakthrough in the Strait of Hormuz oil tanker crisis may be on the horizon, according to Reuters. The territory has denied Iran's claim that the action was taken on the orders of Tehran's longtime foe Washington.

Cricket has not featured in the Commonwealth Games since its maiden appearance in 1998 when the South African men's team won the gold medal in Kuala Lumpur.

"The investigations being conducted around the Grace 1 are a matter for the government of Gibraltar", a Foreign Office spokesman said.

The news about Grace-1 has given rise to hopes about the imminent release of British vessel Stena Impero which was detained by Iran's revolutionary guards about two weeks after the Iranian oil tanker was seized.

The tankers' affair has added to worsening hostilities since Washington pulled out of an worldwide agreement curbing Iran's nuclear programme and reimposed economic sanctions.

The Iranian capture of the Stena Impero drew condemnation from Britain and other European parties to the nuclear deal that have been trying to salvage it by shielding Iran's economy from reimposed and toughened USA sanctions.

Iran has announced that the United Kingdom might free its seized oil tanker after some documents were exchanged that would help secure its release.
