Iran Parliament to Mull Four Anti-US Motions
TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Iran’s legislators plan to discuss four anti-US motions in open sessions of the parliament in coming days.
The parliament will hold open sessions on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday.
The four-anti-US motions will be top on the agenda of the lawmakers during the sessions.
The motions call for establishment of a museum featuring US crimes, banning journalists working with media outlets supportive of the anti-Tehran US sanctions from traveling to Iran, requiring the Ministry of Culture and Islamic Guidance to support making anti-US films, and requiring Iran’s administration to provide all-out support to Iranian individuals and institutions harmed by Washington’s measures.
Earlier this month, Iran’s lawmakers unanimously voted for a motion to designate the US Army and the Pentagon as terrorist organizations in response to a recent move by Washington to assassinate Iran’s revered commander, Lt. General Qassem Soleimani.
General Soleimani, Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, who was the deputy head of Iraq’s Hashd al-Sha'abi (PMU), and a number of their entourage were killed in a strike by American drones near Baghdad International Airport in the early hours of January 3.
The White House and the Pentagon claimed responsibility for the assassination of General Soleimani in Iraq, saying the attack was carried out at the direction of US President Donald Trump.
