Lebanon has not received any docking request from Iranian tanker Adrian Darya 1, whose seizure had been requested by the United States, the energy minister said on Friday.

"The energy ministry does not buy crude oil from any country and Lebanon does not own a crude oil refinery. There is also no request for the Adrian Darya 1 oil tanker to enter Lebanon," Nada Boustani said on social media.
