Iran sues US for re-imposing sanctions

Politics - Iran has filed a complaint on US 're-imposition of unilateral sanctions' with the International Court of Justice, Iranian Foreign Minister said on Monday.

'Today Iran filed a complaint @CIJ_ICJ to hold US accountable for its unlawful re-imposition of unilateral sanctions. Iran is committed to the rule of law in the face of the US contempt for diplomacy & legal obligations. It's imperative to counter its habit of violating int'l law,' he said.

Iran and the five permanent members of the UN Security Council (the US, France, Britain, China, and Russia) plus Germany signed the nuclear deal in 2015. Iran accepted to curb its nuclear program in exchange for economic sanctions relief.

The US President Donald Trump withdrew from the deal in May, calling it the worst deal ever. Washington has also re-imposed the economic sanctions that will take effect on August 6.
