Iran to sue U.S. for shipping sanctions

Iran will sue the United States at the International Maritime Organization (IMO) for sanctioning its maritime transport services, Mohammad Rastad, managing director of the Ports and Maritime Organization of Iran, said on Monday (Nov. 12).

A complaint would be filed to the IMO in London next week against the “cruel U.S. sanctions and restrictions on maritime transport,” Rastad was quoted by Press TV as saying.

Iran’s complaint would be based on international laws that govern the maritime industry, he added.

Brian Hook, the U.S. special representative for Iran, threatened last Wednesday countries and port operators with possible U.S. penalties for providing Iranian ships with access to international waterways and port facilities.
