Iran: Burning Iranian ship 'critical'; US bid at UNSC a 'failure' — FM spokesperson

Iran's Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Bahram Ghasemi said the situation of the Iranian oil tanker that collided with another ship off the coast of China remained critical, during a press conference in Tehran on Monday. Ghasemi confirmed that a fire was still raging on the afflicted Sanchi tanker, and that the incident had caused an ongoing oil spill. Ghasemi touched upon Friday’s United Nations... Еще Security Council meeting on the recent Iranian protests, calling the US’ role in it “another failure that adds on to Mr. Trump’s failures.” Reservations expressed by various countries on the UNSC meeting were seen by Ghasemi as symbolising a “new era” which “doesn’t follow Mr. Trump and the US.” Regarding the January 12 due date of US President Donald Trump's decision over the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JPCOA), Ghasemi warned that Iran would react severely to «irrational behaviour.” The Panamanian-flagged Sanchi tanker had been carrying 136,000 tonnes of light oil when it collided on Saturday evening 160 nautical miles (300km) east of Shanghai.
