Show Summary Details


This chapter summarizes the decisions of the Iran–United States Claims Tribunal on two special types of cases: disputes between Iran and the United States as to the interpretation of or compliance with the terms of the Algiers Declarations; and the large Iranian contractual claim against the United States Department of Defense. Jurisdiction over these cases was reserved to the Full Tribunal. In addition, Article 6, Paragraph 4 of the Claims Settlement Declaration gave the Tribunal jurisdiction over ‘any question concerning the interpretation or application of this Agreement’ when requested by either Government. While the other official claims were eventually distributed among the Chambers, Case No. B1 was reserved to the Full Tribunal because of the magnitude of the claims included within that statement of claim.

Keywords: contractual claims; disputes; Algiers Declarations; Department of Defense; claims; jurisdiction
