Two Iranian ships stranded for weeks at a Brazilian port will be able to set sail on Saturday after the firm chartering the vessels obtained court rulings obliging state oil company Petroleo Brasileiro SA to refuel them, APA reports citing Reuters. 

The ships were stranded after Brazil’s state oil company, also known as Petrobras, refused to sell them bunker fuel in the wake of U.S. sanctions against Iran.

The refueling of one ship, the Bavand, started at around 5 a.m. local time and that vessel is expected to depart at 9 p.m. and head directly to Iran with a load of corn.
