"The Adrian Darya oil tanker finally docked on the Mediterranean coast. and unloaded its cargo", Iran's state news agency IRNA quoted Foreign Ministry spokesman Abbas Mousavi as saying on Sunday.

But the Adrian Darya-1 is merely one example of how Iran has managed to keep exporting oil, often in violation of USA and European Union sanctions, in spite of the global crackdown.

The tanker was detained by the United Kingdom on July 4 on suspicion of heading to Syria with oil, in violation of European Union sanctions.

However, sources in the shipping sector suggest that the tanker is trying to transfer part of its cargo to another ship, after Iran said it sold the oil.

Iranian government spokesman Ali Rabiei said at a press conference on August 26, that Iran had sold the "Adrian Darya" along with oil.

According to the Sun, a Foreign Ministry spokesman said: 'We are preparing for the release of the detained British tanker and legal proceedings are nearing completion'.

Iran this week freed seven of the 23 crew people of the British-flagged tanker.

"Anyone who said the Adrian Darya 1 wasn't headed to #Syria is in denial", Bolton said on Twitter.

Hook has emailed or texted roughly a dozen captains in recent months in an effort to scare mariners into understanding that helping Iran evade sanctions comes at a heavy price, the report added.

Tehran maintained that the supertanker was not bound for Syria and its seizure has taken place at the behest of the US.

The crisis began a year ago after US President Donald Trump unilaterally withdrew from the landmark 2015 nuclear deal brokered between Iran and several world powers. It said it had begun injecting uranium gas into advanced centrifuges and that the country will no longer abide by the deal's limits on its nuclear research and developments.

Yet, the amount of oil that Iran sells for cash is likely even lower, since a large percentage of the oil that it exports is used to pay off its debts to China.

On Saturday, Iran said its coast guard seized a tugboat allegedly carrying contraband fuel and arrested 12 Filipino crew members.

Revolutionary Guards surrounded the British-flagged Stena Impero with attack boats before rappelling onto the deck of the oil tanker in the Strait of Hormuz on July 19.
