Mousavi: Iran, Venezuela remain steadfast against US sanctions

Tehran, June 25, IRNA – Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Abbas Mousavi in a message referred to US sanctions against Iranian captains, saying Iran and Venezuela remain steadfast in countering unlawful sanctions.

“US desperate moves against Iranian individuals - like the one announced by @SecPompeo, aka the #SecretaryofHate – just signal the miserable failure of the so-called “max pressure” Mousavi wrote in his Twitter account on Thursday.

“Despite US pressure, #Iran & #Venezuela remain steadfast in countering unlawful American sanctions,” he added.

Earlier, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said: “The U.S. is sanctioning five Iranian captains who delivered gasoline and its components to Venezuela.”

Meanwhile, US Department of the Treasury announced: “These captains, who led five Iranian flagged tankers — CLAVEL, PETUNIA, FORTUNE, FOREST and FAXON — delivered gasoline and gasoline components to Venezuela, and are now added to OFAC’s Specially Designated National and Blocked Persons List (SDN List).”

Recently, Iranian oil tankers docked at Venezuela's port after passing the Caribbean Sea to help the friendly nation of Venezuela deal with shortage of fuel was caused after the US sanctions against the country.

The arrival of Iranian oil tankers in Venezuela challenged the arrogant system of the US and proved once again that the Iranian government bravely defends its principles and supports its brotherly nation of Venezuela, the president of Constituent Assembly noted.
