Its volume amounted to 1.1 million barrels.

The U.S. authorities sold Iranian oil seized by the U.S. Navy in the Arabian Sea for a total of $26.7 million. This is stated in a statement issued by the U.S. Department of Justice.

“In accordance with the court’s decision, the seized oil was sold. Total revenue was $26.7 million. It can be sent to the American fund for assistance to victims of terrorism,” the message says.

The volume of oil sold amounted to 1.1 million barrels. The Ministry of Justice did not specify when the offshore operations were carried out, which resulted in the seizure of these volumes of oil. At the same time, the agency indicated that it was seized from four tankers bound for Venezuela.

The U.S. Department of Justice, in addition, reported that they had carried out a procedure for alienating the rights to 171 surface-to-air missiles seized by the U.S. navy, which were transported by two vessels belonging to the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps for the Houthi rebels to Yemen.

Over the past year, Iran has repeatedly accused the United States of seizing its ships.
