Iran will allocate $520 million on the development of its own missile program in response to USA sanctions.
In a session on Sunday, a total of 240 politicians out of 244 present voted to allocate $520m to develop the country's missile programme and boost foreign operations of the paramilitary troops, with only one abstention.
The Iranian parliament has approved a bill to counter "terrorist and adventurous actions" of the U.S. in the region. The parliament's majority voted for the bill, which was a response to the US new sanctions against the Islamic Republic.
"Iran will never pay the price of violating the JCPOA", spokesman for the National Security and Foreign Policy Committee Hossein Naghavian said, adding that Washington "is after imposing the cost of killing the nuclear deal".
The US legislation would impose mandatory penalties on people involved in Iran's ballistic missile program and anyone who does business with them.Читайте также: Chelsea Trump Liverpool With £35m Bid For 23-Year-Old Star
It will also require Iran's government and armed forces to draw up a plan to counter United States violations of human rights around the world and to support Iranian bodies and individuals affected by sanctions.
The deal eased sanctions on Iran in exchange for curbs to its nuclear programme and was endorsed by a United Nations resolution.
He praised the bill, saying it "was designed wisely so that it does not violate the (nuclear deal) and provide excuses for opposing sides". Trump repeatedly threatened to tear up what he once called "the worst deal ever", but last month he backed away from a key campaign promise to withdraw from the nuclear agreement.
The motion was designed in view of continued bellicose policies of the U.S. towards Iran, and its persisting measures aimed at endangering peace and security in the region, it said.
The Iranian Parliament on Sunday overwhelmingly approved the general outlines of a motion to counter the US' "terrorist and adventurous" acts in the region, the media reported.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
