British Foreign Secretary accuses Iran of violating international law

UNITED STATES, WASHINGTON (OBSERVATORY) — British Foreign Secretary Dominique Rapp has accused Iran of violating international law, noting that Britain could work with Tehran to ease tensions.

“Iran’s record of respecting basic norms of international law is sad, and it is getting worse and worse,” Rapp said in a speech to parliament on Wednesday.

“However, now we still hope that we can work with Iran and with our international partners to ease tensions, restore confidence and open the way for Iran towards international respect.”

Earlier, Britain accused Iran of being behind the targeting of oil installations of the company “Aramco” in Saudi Arabia. A tripartite statement was issued to Britain, Germany and France blaming Iran for the attack.

However, the British government confirmed its commitment to the agreement on Iran’s nuclear program reached in 2015.
