Iran has filed a lawsuit in the International Court of Justice against the United States over effects of sanctions on Iran’s fight against the COVID-19 pandemic, Leila Joneidi, Iran’s presidential aide for legal affairs, said on Saturday.

The official made the remarks during a visit to the Pasteur Institute in the capital Tehran.
