  • Iran may release British-flagged tanker

Director General of Ports and Maritime Affairs Organization of Hormozgan province Allahmorad Afifipour confirmed on Sunday evening that the UK-flagged Stena Impero will soon begin sailing from the southern Iranian port of Bandar Abbas to global waters after being in detention for the past 65 days since July 19.

Meanwhile, Afifipour noted that legal proceedings on the oil tanker is still going on and its case will remain open, adding that Iran's judicial authorities will announce their decision and the results of their investigation. "We want to see that the ship sails out of Iranian territorial waters".

A crisis that was set off on the waters of the Mediterranean and the Gulf could be winding down as Iran prepares to potentially set free on Sunday a British oil tanker it has held for two months.

The vessel, registered in Britain but owned by Swedish logistics firm Stena Bulk, is one of the ships at the center of a terse diplomatic row between London and Tehran.

Just the day before, Hanell had met with Iran's foreign minister, Javad Zarif, in Stockholm with the intention of securing the ship's release.

Iranian forces seized control of the British-flagged Stena Impero on July 19 as it was navigating through an global passage in the Strait of Hormuz at the entrance of the Gulf. "Unfortunately no further development but we keep at it and hope for a solution within the near future", he said in a text message.

Contacted by AFP, a Stena Bulk spokeswoman, Lena Alvling, confirmed Hanell's remarks but said the ship had still not be freed, several hours later.

"This year we will present a plan to the world at the United Nations that the Islamic Republic of Iran in cooperation with the countries of the region can create security for the Persian Gulf and the Oman sea with the help of the countries of the region", Rouhani was cited as saying on his official website.

On Sept. 4, seven of them were released, while the remaining crew members have reportedly remained aboard the ship. "Iran's illegal seizure of a ship inside an internationally recognised shipping lane is unacceptable and undermines worldwide law".
