Rouhani: Iran Will File Legal Action Against U.S. Over Sanctions

Iran is taking legal action against the Trump administration. The country recently announced it has filed another lawsuit against the U.S.
In a speech Monday, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said his government has filed a lawsuit against U.S. sanctions on its oil industry. He said this move would be a precursor to possible future legal action in the International Court of Justice.

During his speech, Rouhani accused the U.S. of imposing sanctions in an act of revenge.
“The world should know that what the U.S. did was not against the Iranian government, against its nuclear technology…it was against the health of Iran’s people, against our environment, against our livelihood and daily lives, it was against the food and medicine of people,” stated the Iranian president.
Iran sued the U.S. in the International Court of Justice just last year over sanctions connected with the U.S. withdrawal of the Iran Nuclear Deal. Back in October, court judges ordered the U.S. to ensure the sanctions did not affect humanitarian aid or civil aviation safety.
