THE HAGUE -- The United Nations' top court on Wednesday ordered the United States to lift sanctions on "humanitarian" goods to Iran that President Donald Trump re-imposed after pulling out of the 2015 Iran nuclear deal. The International Court of Justice (ICJ) unanimously ruled that Washington "shall remove by means of its choosing any impediments arising from the measures announced on May 8 to the free exportation to Iran of medicines and medical devices, food and agricultural commodities" as well as airplane parts, said judge Abdulqawi Ahmed Yusuf.
The court said sanctions on goods "required for humanitarian needs... may have a serious detrimental impact on the health and lives of individuals on the territory of Iran."
U.S. sanctions on aircraft spare parts also had the "potential to endanger civil aviation safety in Iran and the lives of its users".
Mr. Trump slapped a first round of sanctions on Iran in August after pulling out of the historic deal aimed at curbing Tehran's nuclear ambitions in May, to the dismay of his European allies. A second round of punitive measures is due in November.

UN court, you want to give aid, do it yourself but skip doing business with us.
“No.” *mic drop*
You and what army are going to make that happen?
UN “Court”??? Ordered the US?? ROFL, these guys need to put the bong down and rejoin reality.
Does the US pay real money to keep this Court going ? Hehe
We never cut off medical supplies etc.
How did it come to pass that there even is a “UN court”
Sounds like a bad idea no matter what.
UN Court = Muslim court.
(1) The ICJ has no jurisdiction over the United States. (2) President Trumps response should be to cut all funding to the U.N.
The UN was a dumbassed idea to begin with; just more FDR/Hopkins naivete (at best).
Message to UN:
Put your blue helmets on and GO POUND SAND.
How many battalions does the UN court have?
Sorry, I lost my place as a man who supposedly hates all women because I won't believe their unsubstantiated accusations. I'm a privileged white horrific man and deserve to die/castrated according to Professor Fair at Georgetown U.?
Really? Is that what the “UN Court” says?
I’m sure a quick solution would be Iran pulling all support for Hamas and pulling all their military assistance from the region.
But then again, I’m also sure that’s not going to happen, nor will the UN even back such a thing.
The UN needs to go into the history books.
