TEHRAN: Tehran said Monday it has warned its arch-foe Washington against attempting to seize an Iranian tankerIran had been locked in a standoff with US ally Britain since Royal Marines seized the tanker off the coast of the British overseas territory Gibraltar on July 4 on suspicion it was shipping oil to Syria in breach of EU sanctions.

"Iran has given necessary warnings to American officials through its official channels... not to make such a mistake because it would have grave consequences," said foreign ministry spokesman Abbas Mousavi. The Iranian spokesman said the Gibraltar court order for the release of the tanker was a blow to US"unilateralism".

Mousavi urged other countries not to accept sanctions the United States has imposed on Iran"because they're not legitimate and have no legal basis".Iran's judiciary chief Ebrahim Raisi called for legal action to be taken against Britain over the ship's detention.
