Greek authorities impounded Iranian flagged tanker carrying oil earlier this month citing US sanctions on Iran. The United States later confiscated the oil.
Iran’s foreign ministry on Wednesday summoned the Greek chargé d’affaires to protest the seizure of the Iranian flagged vessel and confiscation of its cargo in the territorial waters of the European country.
US sanctions on Iran are affecting Tehrans ties with other nations. This time, they have created tensions with Greece, which seized an Iranian oil tanker and handed its cargo over to the US. This comes at a critical juncture for the talks to revive the 2015 deal.
