British Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt told his Iranian counterpart Saturday that a tanker held by Gibraltar would be released if Tehran guaranteed it was not violating EU sanctions by heading to Syria.

After what he called a "constructive call" with Mohammad Javad Zarif, he said Britain would "facilitate release if we received guarantees that it would not be going to Syria, following due process in Gib (Gibraltar) courts" he tweeted.
