(Wikipedia) - Oil Platforms case   (Redirected from Oil Platforms (Iran v. United States))

Oil Platforms case (formally, Oil Platforms (Islamic Republic of Iran v. United States of America) ICJ 4) is a public international law case decided by the International Court of Justice in 2003.



Three Iranian offshore oil platforms and a United States Navy warship, USS Samuel B. Roberts, were destroyed when the ship struck a mine in international waters near Bahrain. The basis of the Court''s jurisdiction was a bilateral trade agreement between Iran and the United States: the Treaty of Amity, Economic, and Consular Rights Between the United States of America and Iran.


In 2003, 11 years after the initial application was submitted by Iran, the ICJ rejected the claims of both states.
