[All 5 Iranian Tankers Deliver their cargo to Venezuela. One Iranian Tanker In Venezuelan Waters, While 4 More Watch From African Coast ]

Earlier, two American media outlets reported that several tankers carrying Iranian fuel to Venezuela were forced to turn around as Washington placed pressure on the ships’ owners.

The last Iranian tanker carrying fuel and components for its production has docked at a Venezuelan port after entering the country’s waters on 31 May. The vessel called Clavel arrived just three days after the previous tanker, Faxon, brought its much-needed cargo to the Latin American state.

Three other tankers, Fortune, Forest, and Petunia arrived earlier, with Forest having already unloaded its shipment of fuel, which was urgently needed in Venezuela, and left for an unknown destination. The shipping of the fuel to the country thus successfully concluded despite reported attempts of the US to thwart the transaction between Caracas and Tehran, both of which suffer from American sanctions.

Last week, The Wall Street Journal and Fox News reported that Washington had pressured the Greek owners of two tankers, purportedly carrying Iranian oil towards Venezuela, to turn their vessels around under threat of sanctions.

The tankers,

and Bella, reportedly followed the order.

Venezuela has been experiencing harsh fuel shortages lately despite possessing among the biggest oil reserves in the world. The crude extracted in the country is extremely heavy and requires sophisticated equipment to refine it into fuel. Caracas mostly lost access to such equipment after Washington imposed sanctions against the country’s oil industry in an attempt to topple its elected President Nicolas Maduro – an endeavour which the US has failed to carry out, despite making several attempts.

Iran pledged to help its Latin American partner, condemning American attempts to “destroy” the Venezuelan economy. The US Special Representative for Venezuela, in turn, slammed the two countries’ cooperation, claiming that Maduro is using Venezuelan gold reserves to pay Iran back.

  1. Sunshine hospital .. angiogram & stent .. the orderly & theatre nurse wheeled me up to cardio ward .. on the way the male orderly & I got talking about music & singers.
    Remember him .. remember her .. what about this song .. & this one .. all the way up the lifts & down the corridors & we sang bit here & there .. safe in bed Allen said Sinatra .. You Make Me Feel So Young .. I said .. Under My Skin .. so he began to sing Feel So Young out aloud to Rosemary in the next bed & I sang along out aloud.
    The people in the next room asked ..”Is there entertainment .. he sounds like Sinatra .. who’s the lady singer “& “Are they coming to us also?”
    Great fun !!–[Glad to hear that all went well with the new stent…singing with your orderly? I never could sing a lick.–Peter]

  2. How can the Greek shipping owners be pressured ??
    At what cost ??

    It kills me every time I hear .. the US imposes sanctions …… wow.
    At what cost ??
    If it is true & that’s a big if.
    Insolvency & Bankruptcy is the result.

    10 year sanctions against IRAQ & how many starved to death.
    I firmly believe that the IRAQI government was complicit in the looting of IRAQI assets.
    Hand in hand with elements in the US, UK & else where.
    And the starvation aspect of IRAQI citizens was merely.
    A CAREFULLY ORCHESTRATED CULL OF THE POPULATION.

    I’m a deeply suspicious old woman ..
