The United States has imposed sanctions on five Iranian ship captains who delivered fuel to Venezuela last month.

Pompeo added that mariners who do business with Iran and Venezuela will face consequences from the United States. Iran sent a flotilla of five ships containing fuel to the Latin American country in May. Tehran has said it will continue the shipments if Caracas requests more despite Washington's threat and criticism of the trade between the two countries, which are both under U-S sanctions. Tensions have been high between Iran and the U-S after Washington unilaterally withdrew from the Iran nuclear deal in May 20-18 and re-imposed sanctions under its so-called maximum pressure campaign against the Islamic Republic.
