Iran's Foreign Minister Javad Zarif will visit Stockholm on August 20 and 21, according to the Foreign Ministry. It happens in a situation when the Iran-US relationship is very tense and several vessels have been seized in the area - including the Swedish-owned oil tanker Stena Impero.
And US authorities have filed an application to seize the Iranian vessel Grace 1, which has been seized by the UK in Gibraltar since July, reports AFP and Reuters.
Grace 1? Such a name sounds unusual for an Iranian ship.
And, if the UK already has seized it, why does the US want it?
v2.0 wants the oil. ;-)

Strange? Should it be named " زیبایی 1 "? That's even stranger.
Grace 1 has Panamanian flag, Singaporean manager and Iranian oil.
And it's more to the story.

US authorities have filed an application to seize the Grace 1 Iranian vessel, reports AFP and Reuters. But despite the country's request, the Gibraltar court has now chosen to release the oil tanker. This is when they received written assurances from Iran that it will not deliver its cargo to Syria, Reuters writes.

Why the US wanted to seize Grace 1. Think again:)

Iran will finally release the Swedish-owned tanker, Stena Impero, that it kidnapped two months ago:)

Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Abbas Mousavi highlighted “This release is not being made because of any third party’s mediation,”
