蓬佩奥在华盛顿的新闻发布会上说:“这是一个直截了当、已经推迟了39年的决定。”他说, “伊朗试图干涉美国的主权,我们采取必要的合法行动来保护我们的国家安全。伊朗正为了政治和宣传目的滥用国际法庭的。”



US Ends 1955 Treaty with Iran

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Wednesday the United States has ended a treaty with Iran after the highest U.N. court ordered Washington to remove sanctions on Tehran that limit imports of humanitarian goods.

The International Court of Justice ordered the United States to lift sanctions on Iran involving medicine, food and airplane parts in the latest step in a legal battle over measures the Trump administration put back in place earlier this year.

Pompeo announced the termination of a 1955 treaty that established economic relations and consular rights between the two countries.

"This is a decision, frankly, that is 39 years overdue," Pompeo said at a Washington news conference. "Iran is attempting to interfere with the sovereign rights of the United States to take lawful actions necessary to protect our national security. And Iran is abusing the ICJ for political and propaganda purposes."

Iran had complained to the International Court of Justice about the United States' move to reimpose sanctions that had been lifted under the 2015 international nuclear agreement violated the 1955 agreement.

The U.S. had argued its national security concerns were sufficient to impose the sanctions, a move that came after President Donald Trump in May declared Iran non-compliant with the nuclear deal that had brought sanctions relief in exchange for limiting Iran's nuclear program.
