    Iranian petrol reaches Venezuela, despite US warnings

    The tanker, named Fortune, reached the country’s waters at around 7:40pm local time (1140 GMT), according to vessel tracking data from Refinitiv Eikon.

    The first of five Iranian tankers carrying fuel for gasoline-starved Venezuela entered the country's exclusive economic zone on Saturday, despite a US official's warning that Washington was considering a response to the shipment. The tanker, named Fortune, reached the country’s waters at around 7:40 pm local time (1140 GMT) after passing north of the neighboring dual-island Caribbean nation of Trinidad and Tobago, according to vessel-tracking data from Refinitiv Eikon.
