Malaysian PM: US Sanctions on Iran Violate Int’l Law
By Staff, Agencies
Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad says US sanctions imposed on Iran violate the United Nations Charter and international law.
Malaysia has lost “a big market” as a result of the bans on the Islamic Republic, Mahathir added in his remarks at the Doha Forum in Qatar on Saturday.
“Malaysia does not support the re-imposition of the unilateral sanctions by the US against Iran,” he noted. “Such sanctions clearly violate the United Nations Charter and international law; sanctions can only be applied by the United Nations in accordance with the charter.”
The event, whose main theme is “The Role of Development in Achieving National Security,” focuses on a range of issues, including the displacement of Muslims worldwide, food security, national/cultural identity, and Islamophobia, technology, trade, internet governance, and security.
At the forum, Mahathir invited Iranian President Hassan Rouhani to attend Kuala Lumpur Summit which is set to take place from Dec.19 to Dec. 21.
Malaysia has maintained good diplomatic relations with Iran despite sanctions Washington imposed against Tehran.
