The Stena Impero tanker is leaving the Iranian Port of Bandar Abbas, where it had been detained for over two months amid the diplomatic row between Iran and the UK, according to the data from an oil tanker tracking service, APA reports citing Sputnik.

Note that the case of the Stena Impero, UK-Flagged oil tanker detained by Iranian authorities on July 19 over its alleged violation of maritime rules, had intensified the diplomatic conflict between Tehran and London, and prompted Britain to deploy a naval task force to the region to escort its commercial vessels through the Hormuz Strait.
