BEIRUT – Another Iranian oil tanker is en route to Venezuela, as the Islamic Republic continues to defy the U.S.’ warnings about delivering petrol to the South American nation.
According to the Washington Post, the Iranian ‘Golsan’ fuel tanker is en route to Venezuela and is expected to dock soon.
In particular, the article claimed that the Golsan will reach the Venezuelan coast by either Sunday or Monday.
At the same time, Russ Dallen, the head of the Miami-based investment company, was cited as saying that this Iranian ship is not only carrying fuel to Venezuela, but also, parts to repair the South American nation’s refineries.
This latest delivery by Iran comes just a few weeks after five of their fuel tankers reached the South American country.
The five Iranian fuel tankers reportedly delivered 1.5 million barrels of gasoline to the South American nation, despite the U.S. warnings against entering the Caribbean waters and completing this delivery.
In response to the warnings, the Iranian government summoned the Swiss ambassador in order to inform the U.S. that the Islamic Republic will respond militarily to any perceived threat against their vessels.
