Iranian parliament votes anti-US bill

Iranian parliament votes anti-US bill

Lawmakers overwhelmingly approved the outlines of the bill to "counter America's terrorist and adventurist actions" as some chanted "Death to America", the state broadcaster IRIB reported.

The legislation is a reaction to a bill ratified recently in the US Senate allowing Washington to impose non-nuclear sanctions against the Islamic Republic. The parliament's majority voted for the bill, which was a response to the USA new sanctions against the Islamic Republic.

The bill would allocate over $260 million each to Iran's ballistic missile program and the Quds Force - the external arm of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps - which is deployed to Iraq and Syria.

The bill envisages a comprehensive response to USA acts "endangering Iran's vital security interests in the region" and other antagonistic moves targeting Iran's economic interests.

The bill includes Iran's countermeasure plans for any U.S. acts of exploitation and terrorism in the region, as well as the Western country's hostile moves that undermine the successful implementation of Iran's nuclear deal, dubbed JCPOC, which went into effect in January 2016.

It was passed in the Majlis National Security and Foreign Policy Commission on Wednesday and was sent to Majlis Presiding Board to be put to a vote in the parliament.

Those included in the black list are subject to assets forfeiture and banned from traveling to Iran.

They entities include United States military and security organizations and their commanders who have provided effective financial, intelligence, military, logistic and training backing for the terrorists in the region, especially those of Daesh and al-Nusra Front.

The plan would require Iran's government and armed forces to draw up a strategy to counter United States violations of human rights around the world, and to support Iranian bodies and individuals affected by USA sanctions.

Government representative Abbas Araqchi was also present in the Majlis session.

He also noted that the "highly clever" bill has taken great consideration not to violate the JCPOA.

Araqchi said the government of President Hassan Rohani will support the bill.
