I should chime in here with a point of correction.

ISO 3166 national top level domains are delegated by IANA.

Requests to change the delegation should be addressed to IANA.
Generally when such a request is addressed to IANA the IANA
is looking for an appropriate level of consensus or authority from
the country involved as a precondition of redelegation.

The IETF is not involved in this administrative process.

See RFC 1591
