    Iran releases seized South Korean ship: Khatibzadeh

    Confirming the release of seized South Korean oil tanker, Saeed Khatibzadeh said that聽following the completion of the investigation into the violation of the Korean ship and at the request of the owner and the Korean government for the release, the prosecutor ordered the release of the ship.

    The prosecutor ordered the release of the ship due to the fact that聽the captain and the ship did not have a bad record in the field of violations in the region, he added.
