Talking to ICANA, the spokesman of Iranian parliament cultural commission said  upholding a previous ruling that requires the Iran to pay around $1.7 billion in damages to “American victims of terrorism” by a Canadian court is again the international standards.

Ahad Azadikhah said the accusation came despite Iran’s firm response to similar cases in the past, where various American and European courts had taken punitive measures against Tehran over unproven claims of complicity in terror.

The MP said the Canada measure would pave the way cutting off relations between the two countries.

The new case was brought by families of Americans citizens who had been killed in a series of attacks between 1980s and 2002, mostly blamed on Palestinian and Lebanese resistance movements Hamas and Hezbollah, PressTV wrote.

The families claimed that the Iranian government supported the two organizations and was therefore responsible for their actions.

The complaints were first filed in the US but the claimants turned to Canada after finding out that the Iranian government had more properties and bank accounts there.
