 Khamenei: stealing oil from Greek tankers is not robbery

Iranian helicopters that hijacked Greek tankers in the Persian Gulf last week “confiscated” oil. This statement was made by the supreme leader of Iran, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei. He explained that in this way Tehran “revenge” Greeks for US help in arresting an Iranian tanker amid sanctions. “They are stealing Iranian oil off the coast of Greece. After that, our brave men, without fear of death, capture an enemy tanker. Who is the robber here? You stole our oil, we took it back. Return of the stolen — not a robbery, although they try to make it appear that way”, — Khamenei said.
