The Iranian-flagged oil tanker Lana (formerly Pegas) will retrieve part of its cargo and return home following a ruling of the Greek Supreme Court in Iran's favor. The United States had confiscated the cargo after the tanker was impounded by the Greek authorities more than two months prior. In response, Iranian forces had seized two Greek tankers in the Persian Gulf, which have not yet been released.
