Iran asks UN's highest court to suspend United States sanctions

The ICJ is expected to take several weeks to decide whether to grant Tehran's request for a provisional ruling

"The economic benefits of the 2015 nuclear deal (between Iran and six world powers) were squandered by the supreme leader's adventurism (in the region)".

"Naturally, if we reach the conclusion that (the nuclear deal) is no longer maintaining our national interests, we will put it aside", Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said in a meeting with the cabinet, according to his website.

Tensions were escalated further with the USA after the Supreme Leader also said Iran would not negotiate with "indecent and confrontational" officials over any new agreement. Iranians also have staged frequent protests across the country this year to denounce government officials and business leaders whom they see as responsible for high inflation and unemployment, water shortages and suppression of human rights.

"Iran will put up the strongest resistance to the U.S. economic strangulation, by all peaceful means".

Most foreign firms have abandoned investment projects in Iran, and the next phase of renewed U.S. sanctions in November will hit the crucial oil sector. Lawmakers dissatisfied with the president's replies voted to reject four out of five of them.

The move came only three days after lawmakers sacked the minister of economy and finance blaming him for the collapse of the plight of the rial and mounting unemployment.

Separately, the frame of the smartphone boasts a glossy finish and is home to an elongated volume rocker and a power button. The person lucky enough to hold the Google Pixel 3 in his hands also took some screenshots (below) of its specs.

The Ayatollah also said Iran could terminate the 2015 nuclear deal ahead of the impending oil embargo from the U.S.

Separately, judiciary spokesman Gholamhossein Mohseni Ejei said special prosecutors would swiftly deal with economic crime, including profiteering from foreign exchange and gold dealings, illegal imports of luxury cars and price gouging on imported goods such as mobile phones, state media said.

Iran, for its part, is trying to keep its key buyers in Asia, especially its biggest customers China and India, purchasing Iranian oil even after US sanctions on Tehran oil exports snap back in early November. The iran parliament at the moment is onto the face of Iranian economy and how the president is going to handle the problem the economy is now suffering from due to U.

Reuters reported on Tuesday that France has told its diplomats and Foreign Ministry officials to postpone indefinitely all non-essential travel to Iran, citing a foiled bomb plot and a hardening of Tehran's attitude towards France.

Further sanctions are due to go into effect in early November specifically targeting Iran's banking sector and oil industry, which drives growth in the Iranian economy.
