Britain stated on Tuesday Iran had bought the oil cargo of tanker Adrian Darya 1 to Syria, breaking assurances it had given over the vessel which had been detained in Gibraltar for a suspected breach of European Union sanctions.
Iran stated on Sunday the tanker has delivered its oil after docking someplace within the Mediterranean area.
The vessel, previously named Grace 1, was seized by British Royal Marine commandos on July four on suspicion of being en path to Syria.
Gibraltar launched it on Aug. 15 after receiving formal written assurances from Tehran that the ship wouldn’t discharge its 2.1 million barrels of oil in Syria.

“Iran has proven full disregard for its personal assurances over Adrian Darya 1,” overseas minister Dominic Raab stated within the assertion.
“This sale of oil to (Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s) brutal regime is a part of a sample of conduct by the federal government of Iran designed to disrupt regional safety.”
