Oil Shipment Seized by US Already Sold, Paid for: Iran

The Iranian oil minister says the shipment that the United States claims has seized contained Iranian petrol sold to customers.

Bijan Namdar Zanganeh said the consignment did not belong to Iran.

“The US has claimed it has seized Iran’s petrol shipment. However, although the consignments had been shipped from Iran, neither were the vessels Iranian nor did the shipment belong to Iran,” said the oil minister.

“The shipment was Iranian petrol already sold to a customer,” he noted, adding that the customer had paid for the consignment.

The US claims it has seized Iranian fuel cargoes aboard ships bound for Venezuela.
Iran’s Ambassador to Venezuela Hojjat Soltani had already rejected Washington’s claim as another “lie” and an instance of “psychological warfare.”

“Neither are the tankers Iranian, nor do their owner or flags have anything to do with Iran,” he had already said in a Twitter post.

Soltani said that the fake news was aimed at covering up the failure of the US administration’s policy vis-à-vis Iran.

  1. Even if the consignment has been paid for, it is obligation of Southern Countries Union- SCU member states to defend interest of their customers. If not, the customers won’t patronize Southern Countries Union- SCU market. It is eye for eye, tooth for tooth. Southern Defence Force- SDF must seize American ships till the fuel get to its destination. This is 21st century world of Multipolar international order in which vanquished fallen Anglo-America with their slaves has no legitimacy within Southern Countries Union- SCU territorial sovereign states and market. 20th century world international order of the fallen Anglo-America is dead and gone forever. Anglo-America has fallen and gone forever. Fraudulent criminal UN of the fallen Anglo-America is dead and gone forever. The era vanquished fallen Anglo-America with their slaves bullied countries of the world and stole wealth of many countries, is over and gone forever. This is 21st century world of relations based on Mutual Principles.
