ATHENS (Reuters) – Greece will not facilitate an Iranian tanker sailing in the Mediterranean to deliver oil to Syria, the country’s deputy foreign minister said on Wednesday.

“We want to send a message that we are not willing to facilitate the course of this ship to Syria,” Miltiadis Varvitsiotis told Greece’s ANT1 television.
