US Seizure of Iran’s Assets Violates JCPOA Spirit

The recent US decision to turn over $2 billion of Iran’s frozen assets to the families of US soldiers killed in attacks allegedly linked to Iran goes against the spirit of the July 2015 nuclear deal between Tehran and world powers, an international affairs advisor to the parliament speaker said.
Hossein Sheikholeslam told Tasnim News Agency on Sunday that the seizure of Iranian assets under a US court ruling runs counter to the spirit of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, as the nuclear deal is formally known.
In essence, the JCPOA was meant to end the West’s “language of force” and allow Iran to engage in financial dealings, he said, criticizing Washington for “plundering” Iran’s funds on different pretexts.
Sheikholeslam stressed that Iran should lodge complaints against the US in international courts, urging Iran’s office at The Hague to take the necessary judicial actions to prevent the US from robbing the Iranian nation of its assets.
