TEHRAN – Mohammad Mehdi Boroumandi, deputy chairman of the Majlis National Security and Foreign Policy Committee, said on Saturday that the cause of the oil tanker incident will be announced within two months.

On January 6, Iranian-owned tanker Sanchi, with a full natural-gas condensate cargo of 136,000 tons (960,000 barrels), sailing from Iran to South Korea, collided with the Hong Kong-flagged cargo ship CF Crystal 160 nautical miles (300 km) off Shanghai. 32 sailors lost their lives in the incident.

According to Mehr news agency, Boroumandi said the Chinese government was cooperative during the incident.
