Iran files complaint against United States at International Court of Justice

Iran files complaint against United States at International Court of Justice

Iran's foreign minister said on Monday that his country has filed a complaint against the USA government at the UN International Court of Justice (ICJ) over its new anti-Iran sanctions.

The goal of turning to the ICJ is "to hold (the) U.S. accountable for its unlawful re-imposition of unilateral sanctions", Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif wrote earlier in the day on Twitter. "It's imperative to counter its habit of violating int'l law", reads Mr. Zarif's tweet.

The documents have heightened Israel's distrust of Iran's intentions and the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, which Iran, the U.S., China, France, Russia, the United Kingdom, Germany, and the European Union agreed to in 2015.

The Islamic Republic of Iran says that it is still abiding by the agreement- which was approved by UN Security Council- and condemns United States measures as breaching of the worldwide law.

"Views were (also) exchanged on regional and global issues of mutual interest, including the efforts being made by various parties to address issues that have arisen over the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action", an MEA statement said.

"We want people to reduce oil purchases to zero, but in certain cases if people can't do that overnight, we'll consider exceptions", Mnuchin told reporters on Friday, clarifying some USA officials' comments that there would be no exemptions.

His comments appeared to be trying to ease popular concerns fueled by Trump's decision to withdraw from the deal with Iran on its nuclear program.

No 'time limit' to denuclearize North Korea
Pompeo said North Korea is expected to repatriate the remains in the coming weeks, . calling it "commitment" made by the North. The hostages are back. "Discussions are ongoing and they're going very, very well ", Trump told reporters .

Since the USA president pulled Washington out of the nuclear deal, European countries have been scrambling to ensure that Iran gets enough economic benefits to persuade it to stay in the deal.

European giants, such as France's Total, have chose to withdraw from Iran unless they benefit from an exemption from United States sanctions.

Pompeo said the goal is to deny Iran resources to support terrorism and continue its aggressive behavior around the world.

"This archive explains why we have doubts", a senior Israeli official told USA journalists at the briefing in Tel Aviv. U.S. sanctions will snap back in two parts, with a first round returning in August, and with the harshest sanctions returning in early November.

The ICJ did not immediately respond to a request for information on the Iranian complaint. In a similar direction, the leader of the Islamic Revolution, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, pronounced himself in June.

The Iranian embassy released a statement yesterday that Tehran would do its best to ensure security of oil supply to New Delhi, asserting that it had been a reliable energy partner for India.
