Rouhani threatens US for “possible problems” of tankers with Iranian oil for Venezuela

45

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani commented on US threats against tankers with Iranian oil supplied to Venezuela. Iranian oil is sent to this Latin American country due to the difficult economic situation, which required Caracas to sign an agreement on the import of oil from its allies. Iran considers itself an ally of Venezuela and has adjusted the supply of crude oil. This angered Washington.


Hassan Rouhani:

There are currently five tankers with oil worth $ 45,5 million on their way to Venezuela. We support Venezuela in difficult days for her. Today it is forced to import oil due to circumstances.

According to the Iranian president, who threatened the United States, “if anything happens to the tankers transporting Iranian fuel in the Caribbean or elsewhere due to the fault of the Americans, their tankers and tankers of their allies in the Persian Gulf may also have problems.”

According to the latest data, offshore oil fields with Iranian fuel should call at the ports of Venezuela today, May 24.

Meanwhile, Washington announced its readiness to "take additional measures against those who support the Venezuelan regime of Maduro." According to some reports, the ships of the Navy of Venezuela are going to take tankers for escort.

    Jams from tankers! This have not happened before. Loaded with cheap oil, they will burn out for paying tanker rent. Most of all comes back to the USA. As they say, do not dig another hole.

      Rouhani threatens US for “possible problems” of tankers with Iranian oil for Venezuela

      Iranian tankers stubbornly go to Venezuela in spite of everything and everyone:







      In the meantime, a full-scale mock-up target of a Nimitz-class aircraft carrier that was injured while practicing anti-ship missile attacks is being restored ...

      I was surprised that Venezuela has oil problems. They have huge reserves!

      But the Americans are tired. In each barrel there is a plug. Climb everywhere.

        I was surprised that Venezuela has oil problems. They have huge reserves! ....... from a technical point of view, this is really some kind of help, because Persian oil does not need serious separation like Caribbean (there is a lot of paraffin), but in general, Iran uses Caracas as a transit for throughout Latin America, so most likely they’ll go to BASH to BASH

          Tankers not with oil, but with gasoline. The author "dumped" a patriotic article without even bothering to study the materiel. An oil refinery was stopped in Venezuela. Problems with equipment due to the US blockade.

            Tankers are not with oil, but with gas .... it makes no difference, Iran is trying to sneak closer to the stripes, as the USSR did at one time, that is, in other words, the Caribbean crisis, or the Caribbean crisis 2, and the Iranian base there will be just around the corner, but why officially go there with gasoline or not to wash this is the third thing

        Most oil in Venezuela is very heavy and viscous. For its production, it is necessary to pump light oil into the reservoir for dilution, and to pump out already diluted, to the desired viscosity, oil mixture from underground.

      Well, this is also how and from which side to look at this situation. winked Then a fork drew near the mattresses, in which any of their actions hits their reputation and interests. Tankers are touched - they will get problems in the Persian Gulf, they will not be touched by tankers, so the Iranians defiantly bent them, and for the second time this year. Missile earthing up of mattress bases in Iraq, which was left without a military response, didn’t hit the hegemon’s reputation badly, and here is another crack.

    Venezuelan oil is very viscous. It is mixed with "light" oil so that it can be pumped ... I suppose this is precisely why "Iranian" oil is being transported to Venezuela. If it does not exist, the export of "Venezuelan" oil will stop. The United States continues to wield around the world, as if in its own pocket ... How you want to give it a hand, these playful little hands ...!

        It seems you are not in the know.
        With coronavirus, if anyone failed, it’s shit democrats, in particular the governors of NY, NJ, CA, and speaker Pelosi. When Trump forbade entry from China, the shitman called him a racist and alarmist. There is a record, and it is regularly played. When Trump advised not needing to go to crowded places (it just so happened, shortly before the celebration of the Chinese lunar new year), the shit democrats called him back a racist and alarmist. There is a record of Pelosi, saying that Americans should show their tolerance to the whole world and come to the masses to celebrate, it is said to be such an enriching experience, and absolutely safe. By the way, NY Chinatown became one of the epicenters of the epidemic just a few days after the celebration. And people do not blame Trump for unemployment, but a virus. hi

    And exactly in the tankers oil, not gasoline?
    After the US sanctions, the Iranian leadership began to increase the production of gasoline and diesel fuel, and then Iran started selling it abroad.
    The Kardon refinery (over 70% of production capacity) does not work due to equipment breakdowns and wear.
    Iran is supplying materials, specialists and equipment in order to restore work. In April, an airplane arrived with the catalyst needed to launch the catalytic cracking unit.
    Well, there who knows. The oil of Venezuela, and the Yankees, is really viscous.

      One of the sanctions against Iran, Western countries in the zero, is the supply of gasoline to one of the Axis of Evil modules. I did not understand this information then, because the absurd is a ban on the export of gasoline to an oil country. I found out for myself a ban on the supply of high-octane gasoline, because Iran did not have the technology to produce it despite the abundance of oil. I don’t know how now.

    In accordance with the UN Charter, a naval blockade is equated to the conduct of hostilities. The interception of Iranian tankers by the United States is tantamount to aggression, and Iran receives the legal right to introduce the same measures against the United States and its allies - Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Kuwait and the OAU.

    After which, prices for Russian oil and gas soar to the clouds - glory to Donald Trump bully

              The backbone of the American economy, the financial sector, did not stop, because they could be transferred to work from home. Agriculture did not stop either. Industry and construction are already in the process of restarting, with safety precautions and protective equipment. Mostly without work, waiters, hairdressers, and other workers in those businesses where social distance is not possible, as well as the tourism industry and entertainment. So everything is not as bad as it might seem when looking at the summary numbers.

    The Persians have repeatedly stated that if something happens, they stupidly block the Strait of Hormuz, with its global polymer traffic of 35%. Although this is hardly believed, especially in today's situation, many countries will like armed conflict. I think it will cost everyone minor provocations with mutual accusations of all sins, which also slightly adjusts oil prices.
