Iran reserves right to reciprocate Canada assets freeze: Lawmaker

Pursuant to Canadian government’s decision to freeze Iran’s assets on its soil, an Iranian lawmaker has affirmed Tehran’s right to take reciprocal action against Ottawa.

“The issue of freezing Iran’s assets in Canada is to be pursued through international bodies and a lawsuit will also be filed [against Canada],” a member of Iran Majlis (parliament) Committee on National Security and Foreign Policy Mohammad Saleh Jokar said on Monday.

Meanwhile, he added, Iran will examine different ways through which it can counteract Canada's illegal move.

Iran should make decisions to certainly stop continuation of the behaviors of this British-affiliated government which are against the international law, the Iranian legislator pointed out.

On November 5, Iran's Foreign Ministry Spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast lashed out at the Ottawa government for freezing the Iranian government's assets in Canada, saying the move is the flagrant violation of international law.

“The Islamic Republic of Iran holds the Canadian government accountable for this violation of international law,” Mehmanparast said.
