ISI publishes satellite images showing the approach of Iranian oil tankers to Venezuela exclusive economic zone
ISI publishes satellite images showing the approach of Iranian oil tankers to the exclusive economic zone of Venezuela, where they will be escorted by the armed forces of the Bolivarian Republic.
To suppress possible provocations from the United States, Venezuela for the first time deployed Buk-M2E anti-aircraft missile systems on the island of Orchila in the Caribbean Sea and conducts exercises using the BM-30 Smerch MLRS.
In lak of coastal missile systems, MLRS data can be used to strike ships of the US Navy.
Jorge Arreaza: Venezuela is experiencing fuel shortages due to the blockade. US is not only freezing & blocking Venezuela’s money, it’s also threatening companies which can sell gasoline or spare parts in order to repair refineries..
To be able to produce Venezuela’s own gasoline as before. Iran is a friend & ally, is part of OPEC, as are we since its foundation. This is a legal operation: buying gasoline for our people. So we bought gasoline from Iran and five tankers are coming. -@jaarreaza
As soon as they get to the Venezuelan territorial waters, our economic exclusive zone, they’re going to be escorted by the Venezuelan military as each of them arrives. They’ll be escorted to the port where the gasoline can then be distributed, because we really need it.
This is legal. There’s no provision in any international law that can stop this from happening. So we expect that the United States respects Iran’s sovereignty, respects Venezuelan sovereignty and that they will not get involved in this operation. Jorge Arreaza
