Washington withdrew from the Treaty on Amity, economic relations, and consular rights with Iran from 1955. This was stated on Wednesday, October 3, U.S. Secretary of state Michael Pompeo, writes the Financial Times.

“We had to come out of it a few decades ago,” he said.

Pompeo added that the American side is dissatisfied with the decision, which ruled the international court of justice (ICJ) on the treatment of Iran. “We are disappointed that the court did not recognize that he has no jurisdiction for making any decisions on the [anti-Iran] sanctions of the USA”, — he stressed.

The Secretary also pointed out that Iran is abusing MS “for political and propaganda purposes”, and his claim is absurd.

Tehran has appealed to the international court of justice after the US withdrew from the agreement on the Iranian nuclear program. Iran needs to recognize that Washington is in breach of the Treaty of friendship, and to abolish all sanctions. On 3 October the court required to suspend the operation of restrictive measures for the duration of the proceedings.

In early may, the President of the United States Donald trump announced the country’s withdrawal from the agreement on the Iranian nuclear program. This transaction imposed limitations on the activity of Tehran in the nuclear field in exchange for the lifting of sanctions by the UN security Council and restrictive measures previously imposed by the US and the EU.

Tehran and the six mediator countries (Russia, USA, UK, China, France, Germany) have agreed on the terms of Iran’s nuclear program in the summer of 2015. Under the agreement Iran refuses the further development of this program in exchange for sanctions relief. Limits for the Republic, including on oil exports, was canceled in January 2016.
