The Portuguese-flagged MSC Aries vessel was seized on April 13 by Iran due to 'maritime laws violations', Iran's Foreign Minister Spokesperson Nasser Kanaani said on Monday, adding that there was no doubt the vessel was linked to Israel.

"Iran strives to create a safe shipping environment in the Strait of Hormuz and the Gulf. The vessel was diverted into Iran's territorial waters as a result of it violating maritime laws and not answering calls made by Iranian authorities," Kanaani said.
