Two Iranian ships headed to the US to transmit a “signal of strength”

Two ships of the Iranian Navy, bound for the United States, will soon enter the Atlantic Ocean. The administration of US President Joe Biden took this as a provocation. This is reported by Business Insider.

It was reported that the US has been monitoring an Iranian oil tanker since Saturday. According to satellite images, there are seven high-speed rocket ships on it. The frigate, which is believed to have been heading for Venezuela, is also being monitored.

Senator Marco Rubio of Florida wrote on Twitter that in this way Iran is trying to “send a signal of strength to the Biden administration.”

Iran has long threatened to deploy its fleet in the Atlantic Ocean. Iran’s intentions are unclear, but Foreign Ministry spokesman Saeed Khatibzadeh said countries should not jump to conclusions.

Earlier it became known that the US authorities got $ 110 million for a shipment of oil in the amount of two million barrels, which was on the Iranian tanker Achilleas, which was seized in February off the coast of the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
