USA ends treaty normalizing relations with Iran after ICJ ruling

The United Nations' top court, the International Court of Justice (ICJ), says anything that has an impact on humanitarian aid and civil aviation safety must be suspended.

Critics of the move immediately spoke out and warned of potentially dire consequences.

Iran brought its case to The Hague based on the Treaty of Amity, a United Nations document dating from 1955, well before the 1979 Islamic revolution. "Pompeo walking out of it signals that he wants to make sure that disputes with Iran are NOT resolved peacefully".

Meanwhile, national security adviser John Bolton said the administration also was pulling out of an amendment to the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations that Iran or others, notably the Palestinians, could use to sue the U.S. at The Hague-based tribunal.

Yusuf added that if the United States does not lift the ban on airplane parts, there is a "potential to endanger civil aviation safety in Iran and the lives of its users".

Following the ruling, the Iranian Foreign Ministry also released a statement saying it "sees eye to eye" with the ICJ which has ruled against sanctions on Iran.

Iran alleges that the sanctions imposed by the Trump administration after its withdrawal from a 2015 nuclear deal with Iran violated the so-called Treaty of Amity.

"The drums of war are beating", journalist Aaron Rupar warned on Twitter.

Pompeo told reporters that the termination of the treaty was decades overdue.

Helpful backgrounder on the treaty of amity that Sec. Countries will be prohibited from buying Iranian crude oil exports.

In his speech before the United Nations General Assembly last week, President Donald Trump called on all countries to isolate Iran and stop the flow of money to the regime of President Hassan Rouhani.

It is a provisional measure issued in response to Iran's urgent request ahead of the second round of sanctions scheduled to be reinstated next month.

Pompeo said Iran had brought a "meritless case" to the ICJ, alleging violations of the 1955 pact, and he suggested Iran wants to challenge the U.S. decision to pull out of the nuclear deal.

"The United States has been actively engaged on these issues without regard to any proceeding before the ICJ".

The treaty was signed long before Iran's 1979 Islamic Revolution which ended friendly relations between the countries. But the Trump administration said in May that it was withdrawing from the agreement and announced unilateral plans to restore sanctions against Tehran.

The impetus for the United States tearing up the treaty was a decision earlier Wednesday in the International Court of Justice, which ordered the Trump administration to lift some sanctions on Iran. A new series of sanctions is due to go into effect November 4 aimed at sharply curtailing Iranian oil exports. Its rulings are binding, but it has no power to enforce them, and the United States and Iran are both among a handful of countries that has ignored its decisions.

"Any dispute between the High Contracting Parties as to the interpretation or application of the present treaty, not satisfactorily adjusted by diplomacy shall be submitted to the International Court of Justice, unless the High Contracting Parties agree to settlement by some other pacific means".
