We recall that Iran continues oil supply to the Mediterranian and Asia bypassing the USA sanctions.
According to the investigation, when the sanctions came into effect after May 2, 2019, 14 tankers still continued exporting the oil to China and may also have gone to Syria and Turkey through the Suez Canal.
Iran has transported more than 500,000 barrels since June.
