The US is calling for restricting the entry of Iranian oil tankers into the ports of foreign countries, as well as limiting their passage through the territorial waters of other states.


“We urge the governments of all countries and the maritime community to ban the passage of any Iranian oil tankers, to deny them paperwork,” RIA Novosti quotes US Special Representative for Iran Brian Hook.

In addition, the United States has also developed a recommendation to the maritime community, according to which any accomplice in transporting oil from Iran "may be subject to criminal and immigration prosecution."

Hook said that the proceeds from the sale of Iranian oil goes to sponsor terrorism.

Earlier, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said that Washington regrets the decision of the Gibraltar authorities to release the previously detained Iranian tanker Grace 1.

In July, the United States announced plans to contribute to security in the Persian Gulf.
