CARACAS - The first of five Iranian oil tankers heading to Venezuela to help ease fuel shortages has entered the country's waters, encountering no immediate signs of US interference amid a diplomatic standoff.
Amid heightened tensions due to what Venezuelan authorities described as threats from the United States, the oil vessel Fortune officially entered Venezuela's Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) at about 7:30pm local time (11.30 GMT) on Saturday, according to the shipping tracker TankerTracker.(FA)
