Iran Press/ Iran news: Iran's foreign ministry spokesman, Seyyed Abbas Mousavi in response to a Canadian court enactment to sell Iranian cultural buildings in Canada, condemned the move as illegal and said that it is blatantly opposed to international law.
Mousavi added that the government of the Islamic Republic of Iran does not compromise with any government in protecting the rights of its people, called for the immediate restoration of these properties, Iran press reported.
He also warned that in the event of its cancellation of the illegal decision and compensation for damages, the Islamic Republic of Iran will act in accordance with international regulations to assert its rights and will bear all the consequences for the Canadian government.
Canada has gifted some $30 million worth of Iranian assets to the victims of terrorist attacks in which Iran says has not been involved.
