US Secretary of State Mike Bonbio accused Iran of breaking its promise not to deliver the shipment of oil carried by "Adrian Daraya" to Syria, pointing out that the international community should hold Tehran accountable for this step.
Pompeo wrote on Twitter in a flyer I attached to two oil tankers next to each other off the Syrian port of Banias:
"Will the world hold Iran accountable if Syria delivers this oil?" Pompeo asked.
Earlier, the United States accused Iran of "lying" to the Europeans and the international community by delivering oil to Syria, after it had vowed not to do so.
Earlier in July, British Crown Prince Gibraltar authorities seized the Iranian oil tanker Grace-1, which later changed its name to Adrian Daria-1, on charges of transporting an oil shipment to Syria in violation of European sanctions.
Gibraltar released the tanker in mid-August after saying it had obtained assurances from Tehran that the oil would not be delivered to Syria, but Iran denied providing such guarantees.
The Gibraltar government later announced that it was "difficult to ascertain" whether Tehran had breached the agreement between the two countries on the shipment of "Adrian Daria-1", adding that "there were no guarantees that this oil will not reach Syria, but the
Iranian government has pledged that it It will not sell oil to anyone on the EU sanctions list. "
