    US disrupts Iranian fuel deliveries to Venezuela, official says

    The Trump administration halted scheduled Iranian fuel deliveries to Venezuela Wednesday by threatening sanctions on the ships carrying the cargo, according to U.S. officials. Iran and Venezuela attempted to outmaneuver American sanctions by establishing a new oil partnership.

    Two Liberian-flagged, Greek-owned ships that "were en route to Venezuela carrying Iranian fuel, scrapped their deliveries after the U.S. threatened sanctions," a senior U.S. official told Fox News. "The Iranian oil tankers arriving in Venezuela are nothing but a distraction from the real problems facing Maduro," said a spokesperson from the State Department. "These shipments will do nothing to help Venezuelans, they will only help prop up the former Maduro regime for a little while longer."
