Iran says US termination of Amity pact sign of ‘anger’

5 October 2018 11:42

An Iranian envoy says the US cancelled a 1950s pact with the country out of outrage at an earlier UN court verdict in favor of the Islamic Republic.

“Why some Americans are angry about the Court’s order and immediately announce termination of the longstanding Treaty between the two countries if it is a ‘narrow decision’ and ‘a defeat for Iran,” Iran’s Ambassador to the Netherlands Alireza Jahangiri wrote in a tweet message on Thursday in reference to reactions by US officials toward a ruling by the International Court of Justice (ICJ) that ordered Washington to lift sanctions against Iran that it said were hurting ordinary Iranians.
