Defense Minister Amir Hatami decried the US breach of international treaties and its sanctions on Iran, saying inaction on such lawlessness would have severe consequences for global security. 

In an address to a conference on military medicine in Tehran on Monday, Hatami lashed out at the US government for breaking international law.

“Everybody has witnessed how they [Americans] violated agreements and the world saw Iran expressing its goodwill for the resolution of the fabricated nuclear crisis,” he was quoted as saying by Tasnim News Agency.

The US exited the 2015 nuclear accord between Iran and world powers in May and reimposed harsh sanctions on the country. The deal was aimed at resolving a long-running dispute over Tehran’s nuclear activities.  

“The Americans have imposed sanctions on us because of opting for independence and even blocked our access to medicine,” the defense minister said, warning that lack of action against such US lawlessness would lead to the rise of “new Hitlers”.
