Iranian Parliament Passes Motion to Counter US Terror Acts
TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Iranian lawmakers on Sunday approved the generalities and details of a motion to counter the US terrorist and adventurous measures in the region.
The general outlines of the motion were passed with 240 votes in favor and 1 abstention during an open parliamentary session on Sunday morning.
No one voted against the motion.
Later, the lawmakers approved the bill with 228 votes in favor, one opposition and two abstention votes.
The 27-article draft was endorsed after it was brought forward in Parliament by the National Security and Foreign Policy Commission in July.
The move came after the US House of Representatives and then the Senate passed a sweeping package of bills on sanctions against Iran, Russia, and North Korea.
The US legislation would impose mandatory penalties on people involved in Iran's ballistic missile program and anyone who does business with them.
