World Court hears Iran suit to have U.S. sanctions lifted

Iranian lawyers asked the International Court of Justice to order the United States to lift sanctions imposed by the Trump administration against Tehran. The presiding judge of the U.N. body informally known as the World Court began the hearing by calling on Washington to respect its outcome. During their decades of animosity, both the United States and Iran have ignored some rulings at the court. The lawsuit filed with the ICJ says the U.S. sanctions, which are damaging the already weak Iranian economy, violate terms of a little-known friendship treaty between the two countries, the 1955 Treaty of Amity.
