(Persia Digest) - Deputy Minister for Legal and International Affairs at the Iranian Foreign Ministry has said that all necessary measures are in place in case of non-compliance by Trump regarding the ICJ ruling at The Hague.
Talking about the ICJ ruling in favour of Iran and Trump’s threats to terminate the 1955 Treaty of Amity, Gholam-Hossein Dehghani said: “The Americans have left many international treaties. At this rate, I believe the US President will terminate all int’l and regional treaties. This is going to be a problem for them, because the ICJ ruling is binding.”
