US hails top UN court for ruling on Iranian assets: ‘A major victory’

THE HAGUE, The Netherlands — The United States welcomes an International Court of Justice ruling today that rejected a bid by Tehran to unblock Iranian central bank funds frozen by Washington.

“The court’s decision today rejected the vast majority of Iran’s case, including notably Iran’s claims on behalf of Bank Markazi,” says acting legal adviser Rich Visek of the US State Department.

“This is a major victory for the United States and victims of Iran’s state-sponsored terrorism,” adds Visek, who was at the reading of the verdict in The Hague.
