Gibraltar seeks to ease tanker standoff with Iran
Gibraltar says it is seeking to de-escalate issues arising with Iran since the detention of the Grace 1 tanker.

 

British Royal Marines seized the Iranian oil tanker on July 4 off the coast of the British Mediterranean territory of Gibraltar on suspicion of violating EU sanctions by taking oil to Syria, which Tehran denies.

 

"We continue to seek to de-escalate issues arising since the lawful detention of Grace 1," a spokesman for Gibraltar said Tuesday. The current detention order on the vessel expires on Saturday night, the spokesman said.
