Tehran takes US to International Court

Iran yesterday called for the International Court of Justice (TIJ) to stop the United States from the resumption of sanctions announced by US President Donald Trump on May 8 when it withdrew from the Multilateral Nuclear Agreement signed in 2015. The Iranian representative before the UN High Court, Mohsen Mohebi, told the judges that his country has been “forced” to go to The Hague because Washington refuses to resolve the differences between both countries “by diplomatic channels”. US sanctions, resumed on August 7, have caused the loss of “tens of thousands of jobs” and have “damaged the economy,” said Mohebi, who added that, if sanctions are maintained and expanded, which are expected to be imposed in full in November, that would put the “stability in the region” at risk. The agreement was also signed by Russia, China, France, the United Kingdom and Germany.
