Iran calls for justice against suppliers of chemical weapons to Saddam


Tehran, Oct 22, IRNA - Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki on Monday called on the International Court of Justice (ICJ) to bring to justice suppliers of chemical weapons to Saddam regime during the 1980-88 Iraqi-imposed war on Iran.

Talking to reporters on the sidelines of an international seminar on adverse consequences of using chemical weapons against Iran, he added, "A Dutch company has been legally followed up and found guilty with regards to the issue."

"Tehran requests the ICJ to take legal action against 400 companies which were involved in supplying Saddam regime with chemical weapons in 1980s," the Iranian foreign minister said.

He said that the US ranks first in possessing chemical weapons in the world, and that Moscow has undertaken to annihilate all its chemical weapons in due time.

"Legal action against companies supplying Saddam with chemical weapons will prevent expansion of such weapons," he noted.

Criticizing Washington's double-standard toward weapons of mass destruction, he said, The US does not believe in annihilation of chemical weapons since it possesses the biggest arsenals of weapons of mass destruction, chemical and nuclear weapons."
