VTV.vn - Iranian Secretary of the Expediency Discernment Council Mohsen Rezaee has warned that Iran will seize a British oil tanker if the Iranian tanker that's being held in Gibraltar is not released.

Mohsen also stressed that Iran has never initiated any hostilities in any battles but has also never hesitated to respond to bullies.

The vessel was stormed by the British Royal Marines and Gibraltar port and law enforcement agencies in the early hours of Thursday morning as it was believed to have been carrying oil to Syria, a possible violation of European Union sanctions.

On Thursday the British ambassador to Iran was summoned to Tehran over the "allegedly illegal" seizure of the oil tanker.
