The dispute between UK and Iran over the oil tankers is getting high and the UK government has completely refused to have dialogues with Iran.

According to the details, Dominic Raab, the British Foreign Secretary, completely refuses the settlement agreements with Iran and also warned Iran to settle relations with Britain.

Earlier, an Iranian oil tanker was seized by royal marines near Gibraltar this month which was released soon.

The tanker was detained by authorities in Gibraltar with the help of the British royal marines on the suspicion that it was ferrying a cargo of 2.1 million barrels of crude oil to Syria, in contravention of European sanctions.

Iran denied that the tanker was heading for Syria, and responded to the seizure by detaining a British-flagged tanker in the Strait of Hormuz, a vital oil shipping route that has become a flashpoint in a deepening standoff between Tehran and the west.
