Spokesman Condemns US Ban on Irans Metal Industry

May 9, 2019

The Iranian foreign ministry spokesman has strongly condemned the US regime's decision to impose sanctions on Iran's metal industry.

In a Thursday statement, Seyyed Abbas Mousavi said the US measure contravenes the regime's international commitments, and will result in international liabilities for Washington.

“The sanctions, as has been the case with all the United States’ unilateral measures, counter the basic principles and regulations of international relations,” Mousavi said.

According to the spokesman, the bans are specifically against the US's international commitments under the UN Charter, the Algeria Declarations, the Treaty of Amity, and the injunction of the International Court of Justice, and the US must be answerable for its offences at the international level through judicial procedures.
