Oman asked Iran to return three oil tankers that operated with the Iranian fleet for two years, the state-run Mehr news agency reported.

Iran will return the tankers soon, the agency said, citing an unidentified oil official.

Oman agreed two years ago to rent 10 tankers to Iran under an accord between National Iranian Oil Co. and Oman Shipping Co. SAOC , the state-run news agency said.

Iran has 49 oil tankers in operation with a transportation capacity of 12 million tons of crude oil, Mehr said.
