Iran lodges complaint with ICJ against US sanctions

Iran has lodged a complaint with the International Court of Justice against the United States' reimposition of sanctions, the foreign ministry said today.

Spokesman Bahram Ghasemi said on the ministry's website that the complaint was registered yesterday. 

The goal is "to hold the US accountable for its unlawful re-imposition of unilateral sanctions, Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif wrote on Twitter. 

The complaint came in response to Washington's decision in May, to abandon the 2015 nuclear deal and reimpose sanctions on Iran. 

Tehran says the action violates international obligations, including the 1955 US-Iran Treaty of Amity -- an agreement signed well before Iran's 1979 revolution, but which is still invoked in ongoing legal battles.
