SULAIMANI — British Prime Minister Theresa May will meet with Gibraltar’s Chief Minister Fabian Picardo later on Wednesday (July 17) to discuss the detained Iranian oil tanker Grace 1, a spokesman for May said.

The tanker was seized earlier this month by British Royal Marines off the coast of the British Mediterranean territory of Gibraltar on suspicion of violating sanctions against Syria, according to Reuters.

May and Picardo will also discuss Brexit, the spokesman said.
