Brisk Oil Trade with Iran

Today’s Wall Street Journal (20 May 2010) contains a story about an oil tanker named ‘Front Page’ leaving the port of Fujairah to go to another UAE Port and thence to Saudi Arabia but making a stop in Iran to take on a supply of oil.

It all seems legal but trade sanctions proposed by the UN and the USA have led many countries to keep quiet about their trading business with Iran.
