Lebanon says no docking request from Iran tanker: Minister

Lebanon says no docking request from Iran tanker: Minister Lebanon has not received any docking request from Iranian tanker Adrian Darya 1, whose seizure had been requested by the United States, the energy minister said on Friday. There is also no request for the Adrian Darya 1 oil tanker to enter Lebanon," Nada Boustani said on social media. She was responding to a statement made by Turkey's Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu in Oslo earlier Friday, claiming that the huge tanker and its cargo of 2.1 million barrels of oil worth more than $140 million were on their way to Lebanon.

"Actions speak louder than words, so I think we'll take them (Iran) at their actions rather than their words," Wallace said at a news conference in London with his U.S. counterpart Mark Esper, who earlier said Iran was "inching" towards a place where talks could be held.

"But if there is a deal to be made, we will of course always help the United States along that path, because I think peace and stability in that region is the most important thing," Wallace added.
