Iran's President: US Seizure of Assets a Blatant Theft

Wednesday, 27 April 2016 09:27 AM EDT

TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — Iran's state TV is reporting the country's president has harshly criticized a recent U.S. court ruling that allows the seizure of Iranian assets.

The Wednesday report on the state TV website quotes President Hassan Rouhani as calling the ruling a blatant theft and an example of enduring American hostility toward Iran.

Last week, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that the families of victims of a 1983 bombing in Lebanon and other attacks linked to Iran can collect nearly $2 billion of frozen funds from Iran as compensation.

Addressing a Cabinet meeting on Wednesday, Rouhani added, "The move indicates Washington's continued hostility against the Iranian nation."
