(Persia Digest) – Iran’s top diplomat has reacted to a provisional ruling by the International Court of Justice (ICJ) after Tehran took Washington to court for an emergency suspension of US economic sanctions.
Javad Zarif tweeted after the ruling: “UN top court rules that US must comply with obligations violated by re-imposing sanctions on Iranian people when exiting #JCPOA. Another failure for sanctions-addicted USG and victory for rule of law. Imperative for int’l community to collectively counter malign US unilateralism.”
Persia Digest (PD) reports that the ICJ ruled on Wednesday it has jurisdiction in the case of Iran vs the USA based on the 1955 Treaty of Amity signed between the two countries and issued a provisional ruling for the US to lift certain sanctions against Iran on humanitarian grounds (medicines, food, agriculture, and spare parts for the civil aviation).
