Parliament to Weigh Retaliatory Move after US Sanctions Anti-Iran Bill
Local Editor

An Iranian PM said that lawmakers are going to discuss a motion to take reciprocal measures in retaliation to a bill the US Senate had passed to impose new sanctions on Tehran.

Iran's Majlis

Vice chairman of the parliament's National Security and Foreign Policy Commission said the Parliament's Research Center had proposed a motion for retaliatory action against the US Senate's passage of a new anti-Iran bill.

The motion is going to be discussed by the lawmakers on July 2, after the parliament's recess, Kamal Dehqan added quoted by Tasnim.

He also described the Senate's bill as a brazen violation of the spirit of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action [JCPOA], a nuclear agreement between Iran and the Group 5+1 [Russia, China, the US, Britain, France and Germany].

Dehqan then called on the Iranian delegation monitoring the JCPOA, the country's Supreme National Security Council, and the administration to begin implementing a parliamentary law to retaliate any breach of the JCPOA by the other parties to the deal.

Under a law, passed by the parliament in October 2015, the administration should take retaliatory measures immediately and report back to the legislature.

On Thursday, the US Senate overwhelmingly passed a bill that would step up sanctions against Iran and Russia. The measure, passed by a vote of 98 to 2, includes new sanctions on Iran over its ballistic missile program and alleged "continued support for terrorism."

In order for the new Senate bill to become law, it must still pass the US House of Representatives and be signed by President Donald Trump.

Many experts had slammed the hostile move as a breach of both the text and the spirit of the JCPOA.
