Tehran has denied that the oil tanker seized by the UK near Gibraltar was destined for Syria, as the British government has claimed. Iran has said it now expects to use legal avenues to secure the return of its vessel. Deputy Foreign Minister Seyyed Abbas Araqchi said on Sunday that the Iranian supertanker was traveling in international waters near Gibraltar because its large cargo — two million barrels of oil — prevented the ship from using the Suez Canal.
