Prime Minister of Malaysia: US sanctions against Iran violate international law

UNITED STATES (OBSERVATORY NEWS) — Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad said at a conference in Qatar on Saturday that US sanctions on Iran violated the UN Charter and international law.

“Malaysia does not support the re-imposition of unilateral sanctions on Iran by the United States,” he added during the Doha forum, which was also attended by the Emir of Qatar, Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani.

He stated that Malaysia and other countries have lost a “big market” because of the sanctions on Iran.

He added, “These sanctions are a clear violation of the Charter of the United Nations and international law. Only the United Nations can apply sanctions in accordance with the Charter.”
