ICJ: Iran bid to recover billions in frozen US assets can proceed | DW |

The International Court of Justice (ICJ) on Wednesday approved a bid by the Iranian government to recover some $2 billion (€1.77bn) in frozen assets in the US.

The US had sought for the bid to be thrown out, saying Iran had "unclean hands". Washington has long considered Iran a state sponsor of terrorism.

The ICJ decision, which came after two-and-a-half years of proceedings, knocked back US objections and paved the way for Iran to proceed with attempts to recover its assets.

Tehran argued that keeping the assets frozen was illegal because it breached the Treaty of Amity - a friendship treaty signed between the two countries in 1955.

The treaty guaranteed the protection of both countries' property. It also barred "restrictions on the making of payments, remittances, and other transfers of funds."
