Tehran / London (AP) - Iran has vigorously warned Britain in the dispute over a set in Gibraltar supertanker. "If the British want to influence the US and engage in dangerous games, we advise them not to do so," said a foreign spokesman. Following the arrest of the tanker's captain and first officer yesterday, the Iranian foreign ministry has summoned the British ambassador to Tehran for the fourth time within a week. The spokesman denied that Syria had been the target. The tanker "Grace 1" is in his words too big to break into Syrian ports.
