U.S. Seizure of Iran Tankers ‘Another Lie’: Envoy


CARACAS (Dispatches) – Iran’s ambassador to Caracas has dismissed a report by the Wall Street Journal that the U.S. had confiscated four Iranian oil tankers carrying fuel to Venezuela. In a post on his Twitter account, Hojjat Soltani denied the report as "another lie and psychological war from the U.S. imperialism’s propaganda machine.” He said, "Neither are the vessels Iranian, nor have their owners or flags anything to do with Iran.” Soltani added that the "terrorist” president of the U.S. could not make up for his defeat and humiliation in the face of the great Iranian nation with false news.
