A senior Iranian legislator has called on those who have sustained losses as a result of US hostile moves over the past decades to sue Washington in retaliation.

The US Supreme Court ruled last month Iran's assets frozen in a bank account to be turned over to the American families of those killed in a 1983 bombing in Beirut and other attacks blamed on Iran.

Iran has denied any role in the attack, and the money confiscated under the US court ruling belongs to the Central Bank of Iran (CBI). The assets have been blocked under US sanctions.

MP Alaeddin Boroujerdi said Iranians should sue the US over losses during the 1953 coup by the CIA and during the years after the 1979 Islamic Revolution 

“We expect all those who have suffered losses during the Mordad 29 coup and years after the Islamic Revolution to file a lawsuit so that we can give a befitting response to the recent US encroachment,” he said.

Boroujerdi further noted that Iranian nationals can file more than 190 cases with domestic courts against Washington compared to the 90 cases pending against Iran in US courts by the date.

“In the world of politics, one should possess counter pressure levers. Iran should therefore respond to the American move. We possess the means to take action against the US,” he said.
