美國會採取一切行動, 制止伊朗運油輪將石油運去敘利亞, 因為伊朗的舉動違反美國的制裁措施.
國務卿蓬佩奧表示, 美國已向國際社會清楚表明, 任何人向該艘油輪提供支援, 容許進入港口停泊, 就要面對美國制裁的風險. 蓬佩奧警告, 如果該艘油輪再度前往敘利亞, 美國會採取所有行動制止.
該艘伊朗油輪在一個多月前在直布羅陀海域被截獲, 涉嫌將石油運去敘利亞, 違反歐盟對敘利亞的制裁. 美國曾要求直布羅陀繼續扣押該艘油輪, 但不獲接受. 油輪日前獲放行後, 正前往希臘港口城市卡拉馬塔.
USA-IRAN/POMPEO-TANKERS (URGENT):U.S. will act if tanker carrying Iranian oil de
UNITED NATIONS, Aug 20 (Reuters) - The United States will
take every action it can to prevent an Iranian tanker from
delivering oil to Syria in contravention of U.S. sanctions,
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo warned on Tuesday.
"We have made clear that anyone who touches it, anyone who
supports it, anyone who allows a ship to dock is at risk of
receiving sanctions from the United States," Pompeo told
reporters. "If that ship again heads to Syria we will take every
action we can consistent with those sanctions to prevent that."
The Adrian DArya - formerly the Grace 1 - left Gibraltar on
Aug. 18 and ship-tracking data showed the vessel was heading
toward the Greek port of Kalamta.
