But, the State Department on Thursday said that the sailors were not able to fall under the Prisoner of War protections, since the United States is not at war with Iran.“The Geneva Convention applies for a time of war between nations, and we’re not at war with Iran,” State Department spokesman John Kirby said. “So it’s difficult to see how the provisions of the Geneva Convention can be applied here or us citing them as violations of it, because we’re not at war with Iran,” he added.The Prisoner of War protections come under the Geneva Convention, which applies to the treatment of prisoners of war, only when the two nations are at war. Since the United States is not at war with Iran, the protections don’t apply.The 10 American sailors, who were seen in video apologizing for their “mistake” in entering Iranian waters where they were captured, were released by Iran. Because the sailors do not fall under the convention, it means that the Obama administration will not accuse Iran of violating the convention’s protections for prisoners of war.The short detainment of the sailors comes days before the implementation of the global agreement on Iran’s nuclear powers. The agreement would lift sanctions on Iran in exchange for limits imposed on its ability to build a nuclear weapon.
