Iran Denies Having Sent Oil Tanker to Lebanon

TEHRAN (Shana) -- A spokesman for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said: "Iran has not sent any oil tankers to Lebanon, but all countries know Iran's capacity to export petroleum products, so we will respond to this request whenever we are asked for help."

Speaking on Monday morning, Saeed Khatibzadeh told a press conference on the possibility of extending the agreement with the International Atomic Energy Agency: "Parliamentary law is clear, agreement or disagreement with the IAEA and how to continue or not to continue cooperation is a serious issue. No decision has so far been made in this regard.”

He underlined the Vienna talks, and added: "The continuation of the talks depends on the continuation of the investigation. We have made and announced the decisions we should have made, and now it is the turn of the opposing parties to make their decisions.”

The spokesman for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, in response to a question about the Iranian embassy in Lebanon tweeting about an Iranian tanker docking in the Lebanese port, noted: "Of course, no oil tanker was sent and the embassy tweet was a response to the statements made by certain people. The Islamic Republic of Iran stands by the Lebanese government and people and will not withhold any assistance.”

Khatibzadeh said: "All countries know Iran's capacity to export petroleum products, and whenever we are asked for help, we will respond to such requests."
