Iran demands Britain release seized tanker, saying action will ‘have consequences’

Iran called on Britain on Friday to immediately release an oil tanker that British Royal Marines seized last week on suspicion it was breaking European sanctions by taking oil to Syria, a foreign ministry spokesman told state news agency IRNA.

“This is a dangerous game and has consequences… the legal pretexts for the capture are not valid… the release of the tanker is in all countries’ interest,” the spokesman, Abbas Mousavi, said. Source Telegraph
