Iran: International Court Orders U.S. To End Sanctions Over A 1955 Treaty

Unic Press UK: The International Court of Justice (ICJ) on Wednesday ordered the United States government to ease a range of sanctions against the Islamic Republic of Iran with regard to a writ of summons filed by Iran over U.S. violation of a 1955 Treaty.

In its judgement, the court ordered the United States to:

“(1) unanimously, that the United States of America, in accordance with its obligations under the 1955 Treaty of Amity, Economic Relations, and Consular Rights, must remove, by means of its choosing, any impediments arising from the measures announced on 8 May 2018 to the free exportation to the territory of the Islamic Republic of Iran of (i) medicines and medical devices; (ii) foodstuffs and agricultural commodities; and (iii) spare parts, equipment and associated services (including warranty, maintenance, repair services and inspections) necessary for the safety of civil aviation; (2) unanimously, that the United States of America must ensure that licences and necessary authorizations are granted and that payments and other transfers of funds are not subject to any restriction in so far as they relate to the goods and services referred to in point (1); (3) unanimously, that both Parties must refrain from any action which might aggravate or extend the dispute before the Court or make it more difficult to resolve.”

It was on 16 July 2018 that the Islamic Republic of Iran instituted proceedings against the United States with regard to alleged violations of the 1955 Treaty of Amity, Economic Relations and Consular Rights concluded between the two countries, seeking an order of court to preserve its rights under the 1955 Treaty.
