Is Reuters losing its marbles?

So Iran which suffers more sanctions than Syria is helping Syria? " Iran is helping its ally Syria defy Western sanctions by providing a vessel to ship Syrian oil to a state-run company in China, potentially giving the government of President Bashar al-Assad a financial boost worth an estimated $80 million."  Wait, so Iran is helping Syria to sell oil to China, so that China can then sell the oil to North Korea, which then sells it to Cuba, which then sells it back to Syria?  I am confused and dazed, damn it.
