TEHRAN: Tehran said it had warned its arch-foe Washington against attempting to seize an Iranian tanker, which sailed into international waters on Monday after being released from Gibraltar.

Flying the Iranian flag, it was on course for the Greek port of Kalamata, according to shipping data. Speaking at a news conference, he dismissed the notion of any link between the seizure of the Iranian tanker off Gibraltar and the British-flagged tanker in the Gulf."There have been two or three maritime violations made by that ship," he said, referring to the Stena Impero held off Iran's Bandar Abbas.

Mousavi urged other countries not to accept sanctions the US 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 vessel's detention. "The tanker was renamed ... but the problem with US sanctions remains," he told AFP."I don't see any buyer in the Mediterranean apart from the sanctioned regime in Syria."Iran's Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif was unable to give anything away when asked during a trip to Finland if the oil would be offloaded in Greece.
