Muhammad Sahimi, NIOC Chair in petroleum engineering and
professor of chemical engineering & materials science at the
University of Southern California in Los Angeles, says that there are no legal grounds for sanctions against Iran.

actually legal, because the Security Council did not do what it was

and international security. The fact of the matter is there was no
case. And the United Nations Charter also has provisions against
issuing resolutions when there is no cases in international courts
