Ministry of Foreign Affairs announcement regarding the seizure of the British-flagged tanker (Athens, 23 July 2019)
As a seafaring country, Greece attaches great importance to ensuring freedom of navigation everywhere in the world. Actions against the freedom of navigation, as enshrined in international law, cannot but be condemned.
The immediate release of the crew and the unimpeded continuation of “STENA IMPERO’s” journey is expected, as a demonstration of respect for the provisions of international law.
