Parliament to Study Extension of Sanctions by US Senate

A0219803.jpgTEHRAN (Fars News Agency)- Rapporteur of the Parliament’s National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Kazem Jalali said that his commission is due to study extension of sanctions by the US Senate and Congress on Tuesday.

Jalali told FNA on Sunday that the commission members would study the US decision in a joint session with the Foreign Ministry officials.

The parliament members have already discussed the measure in a commission meeting on Sunday afternoon, but they intend to further probe into the issue through exchanging views with Foreign Ministry officials.

Meantime, Jalali reminded that the extension of the sanction law proves that the United States is still pursuing its hostile attitude towards Iran despite all its claims about human rights and democracy.

He pointed out that the measure is a blatant violation of the UN Charter, as clause 7 of article 2 of the charter considers it as an intervention in the domestic affairs of an independent state.

The lawmaker called on Iran’s residing representative at the United Nations to protest at the measure and file a compliant with the UN in this regard.

Jalali said that in another part of the Sunday session of his commission, the MPs have discussed the bill for fingerprinting US citizens arriving in Iran, and added that the bill is the impending agenda of the parliament.

The Rapporteur of the Parliament’s National Security and Foreign Policy Commission also stated that the commission has elsewhere approved the bill on avoidance of double taxation between the governments of the Islamic Republic of Iran and the Republic of Korea, while it has also ratified the generalities of the bill concerning the agreement between Iran and Sudan on avoidance of double taxation and prevention of tax evasion in relation to income taxes.
