Iranian state television trumpeted the court’s decision in a scrolling graphic at the bottom of TV screens: “The victory of Tehran over Washington by the Hague Court.”
THE HAGUE, Netherlands — The United Nations’ highest court on Wednesday ordered the United States to lift sanctions on Iran that affect imports of humanitarian goods and products and services linked to the safety of civil aviation.
The ruling by the International Court of Justice is legally binding, but it remains to be seen if the administration of President Donald Trump will comply, FOX NEWS reports.
Iran’s Foreign Ministry said in a statement “the decision proved once again that the Islamic Republic is right and the U.S. sanctions against people and citizens of our country are illegal and cruel.
“The United States must comply with its international commitments and lift obstacles to Iranian trade. The court considers that the United States must…remove by means of its choosing any impediment arising from the measures announced on 8 May 2018.
Washington must remove, by means of its choosing, any impediments arising from the re-imposition of sanctions to the export to Iran of medicine and medical devices, food and agricultural commodities and spare parts and equipment necessary to ensure the safety of civil aviation.” ~ Judge Abdulqawi Yusuf
The United States has already told the world that the International Criminal Court — a separate and unrelated institution based just a few miles away from the International Court of Justice, that they are dead to us and that we do not recognize their corrupt authority.
“For all intents and purposes, the ICC is already dead to us.” ~ National Security Advisor, John Bolton
Iran has been threatening the UNited States and its allies for over 50 years and their threats have had some action behind them recently as they launched missiles into Syria.
Iran’s paramilitary Revolutionary Guard said Monday that it launched ballistic missiles into eastern Syria, targeting militants the force blames for a recent attack on a military parade in Iran.
