US Congress approves sanctions on Iran’s missile program

64
The House of Representatives of the US Congress on Thursday adopted a bill that effectively obliges the country's president to impose sanctions on individuals related to the development of Iran’s ballistic missiles. The meeting was broadcast live on the site of the chamber.


According to the text, "the policy of the United States is to prevent Iran from taking any action related to ballistic missiles" capable of carrying a nuclear warhead. This also applies to test launches.

US Congress approves sanctions on Iran’s missile program


In this regard, the head of state, as indicated in the bill, should impose economic sanctions on any Iranian government department, foreign citizens, institutions and authorities that contribute to the development of Iran’s missile program, including by supplying the necessary components, technologies and rendering other services. Restrictions may apply to persons working with similar structures.

If Iran launches a rocket launch, the US president will be obliged to submit to the Foreign Affairs Committees of both houses of Congress his assessment of the event within 30 days: was this a violation of the 2231 resolution adopted by the UN Security Council in 2015 in support of the agreement on the Iranian nuclear program. If the head of the executive comes to the conclusion that this resolution has been violated, then he will also have to submit to the legislators a list of persons involved in this launch, specifying whether they are already included in the sanctions lists, if not, why not.

The bill also provides for the introduction of sanctions against foreign citizens and departments that carry out direct or indirect deliveries of weapons to Iran without the approval of the UN Security Council, reports TASS

          So in Yemen, it all started when the KSA wanted to plant its president and “push” the new one. Then she created her coalition and went to war in Yemen. So better place this propaganda in the west.
          The royal family at KSA, according to a former head of Pakistani intelligence, is now in a panic. They are definitely not up to the open war with Iran. They lose Yemen, lost Iraq and Syria, Lebanon and Qatar. We parted with the Turks. Russia came to BV. And only she can be an intermediary in negotiations, because it’s pointless to fight such a list of countries (for which Iran is still). And we see tours of Arabs and Jews to the Kremlin.
          And based on your calculations on the state of the KSA economy, the Saudis are definitely not up to war. Their game of lowering the price of oil hit a boomerang. Now they are agreeing with Moscow on the volume of production. hi

              From the category, as Trump says, fake news. laughing . Friend, there’s actually Russia fighting for the Syrians with the Iranians - what is the point of killing a Russian general !? The betrayal of an individual cannot be attributed to everyone. I'm more sure what the Yankees have pointed. Not Syrians or Iranians. They lost the war without VKS support. Hence the conclusion that they are not profitable. But the provocation on the part of the United States, so that the Russian Federation spread one of the de-escalation zones, looks more convincing.
              There is no speech about the Union. The point is that the Iranians and Russians are building a long-term policy of good-neighborly cooperation. There are many facts to this. As an example, gas and oil production with transportation. Joint projects on railway and transit. The main thing is that Iran has its own point of view, and not be someone else's puppet. This is enough for the Russian Federation, so that countries defend their nat. interests. Since Moscow needs peace on the Eurasian continent and even more so at hand. This is a necessary and sufficient condition for the prosperity of the Russian Federation.
              "Russia was pulled to the" bottom "by the social activist of Central Asia and subsidies to the rural economy of Ukraine. Now this is not ..." - the statement of one amer. the president.
              Enough of this "propaganda" here for you. 90% of Syria's territory is controlled by Assad with the help of Tehran, Moscow and Hezbollah. hi
              As if the West did not shout that Assad should leave, but he will still sit them all. He is now the Syrian Lion for all Arabs. Behind it will be the majority of the people (80-90 %%), followed by the Russian Federation with Tartus and the air base - the Russian Federation there will supply and reinforce the VKS with a full base with a flotilla. Turks with Tur. Stream and Akkuya, and after a failed coup will not go in the wake of NATO. S-400 to help them. They will not leave yet, but they will not be jackal against the Russian Federation and the EAEU. They will soon be asked to the SCO. And this is the organization for Security in the first place - EurAsia will not give Turks and Iranians an insult. Then we’ll see where the Turks will be.
              So your conclusions are not appropriate.

      Maybe you should all sit down at the negotiating table together and build relationships?
      In words, Israel has been actively fighting terrorism for many years. Moreover, we have repeatedly seen Israeli-made weapons in the arsenals of terrorists. Strange, where is it from?
      In my opinion, the Israelis foolishly missed their chance of reconciliation and stabilization in their region. You could help your long-standing enemy of Syria fight terrorism not in words, but in practice, and would become friends, including Iran and, moreover, your authority would soar in the region to heaven. And so ... you gave leadership to Russia with your stupidity. And again, enemies around. And friends could be around.

    What enemy? Iran will get to Israel with a margin. It can be reached to the middle of Europe. But so far no further. The DPRK has better technology, but whether their "intercontinental missile" in real life can reach the range that everyone is talking about is not known. Regarding Trump's statement

    If Iran launches a rocket launch, the US president will be obliged to submit to the Foreign Affairs Committees of both houses of Congress his assessment of the event within 30 days: was this a violation of the 2231 resolution adopted by the UN Security Council in 2015 in support of the agreement on the Iranian nuclear program. If the head of the executive comes to the conclusion that this resolution has been violated, then he will also have to submit to the legislators a list of persons involved in this launch, specifying whether they are already included in the sanctions lists, if not, why not.

    then of course all these launches in the opinion of the United States will always be a violation. Even if they will not be so

With sanctions, if you drop all ambitions, the states can be driven into such a hole, and even sprinkled with dermis.

      If the Russian oligarchy, together with China, Iran and India impose sanctions against the United States, the oligarchy and the Celestial Empire will become significantly poorer, and Iran and India, as they were deep in the place where they sit, will remain there. And the States will not care. The largest consumer market, the largest purchasing power in the world. 300 million people, the average salary is 4 thousand tanks per month, the average pension is 1800 tanks per month.

        I do not agree. You know that only in terms of gold reserves, China in a smart situation, the states can bend. There is a nuance, I don’t want to flattery in details, this is a topic from the 70s, you need to be friends with China with Russia - this is the time, and the second India, this is ours, relations at the top were messed up, but we need to fix everything - we used to trust each other. And respectful feelings towards Iran - the American-Israeli duet could break it. And at the expense of the latter - the market (by force obsessive), and everything else is relative.

    I would not be surprised if, during the next test, an Iranian ballistic missile crashes an American passenger plane.

    Israeli Intelligence Minister: I warn Khamenai, Rouhani and Sulejmani: if you continue to incite the state of Israel and threaten us with destruction, you will disappear. Our opportunities are colossal.


    And not a single congressman has ever uttered a word about your nuclear weapons, which, unlike the Iranian, actually exist and threaten the World. And about your ballistic missiles with a range of 6500 km, which can fly not only to Tehran, but also to Moscow, too, no US sanctions and protests. And all because the people of America have long been under the heel of Zion and this is a fact.

    Congress really messed with the UN.

    And, in general, all this will continue, someone really doesn’t fuck the mattresses. They themselves will not be able to find sanity.

    This is science for rotten bulk liberoids. It is said - if not Crimea, then they would have found another reason for sanctions. Iran refused the nuclear program, but found a reason.

    Comrade Kim Jong-un! Do not even bother to talk to these nefarious people, not to mention giving up something.

      Comrade Kim Than Eun will not talk to the Americans. He, like his brother and sister, received a Swiss education and looks at Amers as plebeians.
