The decision was communicated in a letter signed by INTERTANKO Chairman Nikolas Tsakos to NITC Managing Director Ali-Akber Safaei.
NITC became a member of the association in February 2007 but INTERTANKO discontinued cooperation with its Iranian member under escalation of sanctions.

, and later the IMO's current estimate.
