Iranian lawmakers unanimously approved general outlines of a bill countering ‘hostile US measures against Iran,' Chairman of the Iranian Parliament’s National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Alaeddin Boroujerdi said in Tehran, Saturday. Speaking to reporters following a special meeting held by the commission, Alaeddin Boroujerdi said that “the message of the unanimous vote is that there is coordination and unity in the Iranian parliament for taking actions against the US Congress' measures.” Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Araghchi also commented on the meeting and vote, saying that “a strong reaction should be taken” against the latest US sanctions against the Islamic Republic. “We need a suitable reaction against these hostile actions of the US especially, because of the effects that influence JPCOA,” Araghchi said. On Thursday, the US Senate approved the bill with 98 votes to two, two days after the House of Representatives had voted for the bill with an overwhelming majority of 419-3. Now that the bill has been approved in both the House and the Senate, it will be passed to US President Donald Trump to sign it into law.
