Greece denies assistance to Iranian oil tanker released by Gibraltar

Greece’s deputy foreign minister Miltiadis Varvitsiotis told the local television network on Wednesday that his country would not assist the Iranian oil tanker Adrian Darya (former Grace 1) to dock at the port of Kalamata in Greece’s Peloponnese Peninsula, or “facilitate its passage to Syria.”  The US State Department warned Athens on Tuesday that by assisting the tanker, Greece would be abetting the Revolutionary Guards Corps which is responsible for Iran’s oil exports and which Washington has designated a terrorist organization.

    Wait a minute, there is rust on the anchor, and possibly very dangerous rust on the interior of tanks putting all structure at risk of collapsing!!!

    We need a serious inspection of the bottoms of the tanks, fast, like yesterday!!

    Greece does not want us, then it follows that we are forced go to Syria. Only they could accommodate this large tanker and help to pump out and inspect the bottom of the tanks.

    What else can I do? What if we sink? There is maximum danger! May Poseidon guide and save us on this perilous travel!

    Maybe the Israeli’s will help? The Tanker could dock in Haifa and never leave.
