Iranian-flagged cargo ship left Bandar Abbas on May 15 and now is in Venezuela's territorial waters.

Recently, Iranian oil tankers docked at Venezuela's port after passing the Caribbean Sea to help the friendly nation of Venezuela deal with shortage of fuel caused by the U.S. sanctions against the country.

Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro thanked Iranian support, stressing that Caracas and Tehran are both after peace, and have right to do free trade. Also, Cuban President Miguel Diaz-Canel commented on the issue saying that the arrival of Iranian oil tankers at the Venezuelan port broke the U.S. "unacceptable and criminal" blockade on Venezuela.
