Iran’s Zarif: UK’s unlawful seizure of Iranian tanker is a ‘dangerous precedent’

Published: Updated:

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said in a tweet on Monday that the UK’s unlawful seizure of a tanker with Iranian oil sets a dangerous precedent and must end now.

“UK's unlawful seizure of a tanker with Iranian oil on behalf of #B_Team is piracy, pure and simple. It sets a dangerous precedent and must end now,” he tweeted.

“Iran is neither a member of the EU nor subject to any European oil embargo. Last I checked, EU was against extraterritoriality,” he added.
