Iran tanker departs after Gibraltar rejects US demand

The Iranian oil tanker at the focal point of a political contest has withdrawn from Gibraltar after the British abroad domain dismissed a United States (US) request to hold onto the vessel.

As indicated by the checking site Marine Traffic, the supertanker – which had been confined since July 4 off the shoreline of Gibraltar – lifted stay on Sunday night and began cruising south.

Experts in Gibraltar have not affirmed its takeoff. Gibraltar held onto the Grace 1 on July 4 on doubt it was moving oil to Syria in break of European Union approvals, setting off a sharp weakening in relations among Tehran and London. Iran has more than once denied any infringement.
