The International Court of Justice on Wednesday ordered the suspension of US sanctions on "humanitarian" goods supplied to Iran.

The International Court of Justice (ICJ) has asked the United States today to ensure that sanctions against Iran do not affect humanitarian aid or the safety of civil aviation.

"The court unanimously declares that the United States, through its own means, must remove all obstacles imposed by the measures announced on May 8, 2018 on the freedom to export medicines," Judge Abdelkawi Ahmed Yousef, president of the Hague-based court, was quoted as saying. Medical supplies, foodstuffs and agricultural products to Iran. "

President Donald Trump has reimposed US sanctions on Iran after he pulled out of the nuclear deal signed in 2015.

Tehran lodged a complaint with the UN tribunal claiming that the sanctions violated the terms of the 1955 Treaty of Friendship.

The decisions of the International Court of Justice are binding and can not be challenged. But the court has no means of enforcing them.

President Trump said last week that the United States would impose tougher sanctions against Iran, asking the Security Council to work with the United States to make sure that Iran's behavior stopped and prevented it from acquiring a nuclear bomb.

"The Iranian regime is issuing violence, terrorism and chaos," said Trump, who last week presided over the UN Security Council session to combat the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction, stressing that "Tehran must never be allowed to possess a nuclear weapon."

Trump criticized the nuclear deal, which the United States pulled out earlier this year. "Iran's aggression has increased" since its signing in 2015, and Tehran has "used funding from the convention to support terrorism and fuel conflicts in the region and beyond the region," he said.

He stressed that his country would impose tougher sanctions on Iran "to contain the overall bad behavior" after the completion of the re-application of all sanctions lifted under the nuclear agreement in early November.

Trump warned that "any entity or party trying to circumvent this will face strict measures."ط£ط±ط¨ط¹ط©️-ظ‚طھظ„ظ‰-ظˆ12-ط¬ط±ظٹط­ط§-ظپظٹ-ط­ط
