There is No Legitimate Reason to Impose Sanctions on Iran
Vijay Prashad | counterpunch.org | 2018-10-09
The United States unilaterally walked away from the nuclear agreement earlier this year, which provoked Iran to sue the US in the International Court of Justice. This week, the Court ruled in Iran's favour. My friends in Tehran say that they would have been surprised if the Court had not ruled on Iran's behalf.
