10:08 pm
a little known french agreement that predates the one nine hundred seventy nine islamic revolution the court agreed but didn't call for the complete lifting of sanctions falling short of the resulting decision that iran would have wanted judges did ask the us not to interfere with banking transactions related to food medicine and air safety. but even as the judge read the ruling its practical application remains a question mark and any history made here by the i.c.j. judges is likely to be symbolic at best with no policing mechanism to enforce its decision in practical terms the court's judgment is more recommendation than ruling while the u.s. does not recognize the authority of i.c.j. judges it did take iran to court back in one nine hundred eighty when it was still a voluntary member in a case centered around the u.s. embassy hostage crisis the i.c.j. ruled that the iranian government was bound to secure the immediate release of the hostages to restore the embassy premises and to make reparation for the injury caused to the united states government but after the court ruled it owed nicaragua

10:11 pm
announcing that the united states is terminating the one nine hundred fifty five treaty of amity with iran this is a decision frankly that is thirty nine years overdue iran is abusing the i.c.j. for political and propaganda purposes and their case as you can see even the decision lacked merit given iran's history of terrorism ballistic missile ective in the other mine behaviors iran's claims under the treaty are absurd the court's ruling today was a defeat for ron and what we've heard from donald trump's a national security adviser as well what he had to say. well not only did john bolton reiterate mike pump a.o.s. point about the i.c.j. ruling involving the lawsuit from iran he also announced that as far as the us is concerned about an international treaty the vienna convention on diplomatic relations which took effect in one thousand nine hundred sixty one the us is going to pull out of an optional protocol like an amendment to the convention that
