The ambassador of the Islamic Republic of Iran to Pakistan, in response to local media reports about the alleged seizure of an Iranian ship at the port of Karachi, said the embassy has not received any official report from the Pakistani authorities in this regard.

Seyed Mohammad Ali Hosseini responding to a question of IRNA reporter on Monday said that even no Iranian agency has confirmed the seizure of Iranian ship in Pakistan.

He added that Pakistani media also alleged that oil had been smuggled from Iran through the ship, a claim which needs to be thoroughly investigated by technical experts.

He said the reports are silent about the identity of the owner of the ship and to which country does the boat belongs.

No Pakistani official has spoken on the matter yet.
