Iran filed against the US a lawsuit in the international court of justice. About that Iranian foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif wrote on his Twitter page on Monday, July 16.
According to him, Iran intends to bring Washington to account for repeated illegal and unilateral sanctions. “Iran remains committed to the rule of law, despite the contempt of the US diplomacy and liabilities,” said Zarif. The Minister added that it is necessary to oppose the habits of the American party to break international law.
Earlier it was reported that the United States refused to make exceptions for European companies with sanctions against Iran. Washington will renew the restrictive measures in two stages: on August 4, and November 6.
