Head of the Iranian Parliament’s National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Alaeddin Boroujerdi underlined that a bill to confront US adventurous and terrorist acts in the region is being prepared by the lawmakers.
“This bill is finalized in Parliament’s National Security and Foreign Policy Commission, setting some obligations for the government to implement,” Boroujerdi said.
The senior lawmaker reiterated that the bill is ready and will be submitted to the Parliament’s Presiding Board soon.
The bill provided by the Commission, is a response by Iranian Parliament and MPs to recent Congress measure to impose new sanctions on Iran, Boroujerdi said, adding, “In order to defend national interests, the countermeasure bill is the Islamic Republic of Iran’s powerful act against the United States.”
In relevant remarks on Tuesday, Larijani blasted the US Congress for passing a bill to impose unilateral sanctions against Iran, and said it evidently violates the international law.
Larijani made the remarks addressing second meeting of Eurasia’s parliament speaker in Seoul.
“The US Congress move is violation of international law,” the Iranian parliament speaker said.
The Iranian parliament speaker deplored the US Senate’s recent decisions in imposing sanctions on the Iranian and Russian nationals, and said that Iran believes that these measures contradict the US’ commitments concerning international law dealing with non-interference in other countries’ internal affairs.
“It is necessary that the governments and parliaments of Eurasia region to adopt the necessary mechanisms in a bid to prevent such bullying behaviors and also to nullify the effects of such sanctions,” Larijani added.
The Iranian parliament speaker said that in fact, the US strategy is to play with terrorism, not fighting it, and added, “The Eurasian states should increase the costs for those promoting the ideology of terrorism and their sponsors in propaganda, political and security fields.”
Larijani said that the US and some regional states claim to be fighting terrorism, but “it is clear to everyone that they are in fact supporting the terrorists in different ways”.
The Iranian parliament speaker also expressed dismay that terrorism and violent extremism have turned into a devastating global threat endangering international peace and security.
“Terrorism has left thousands of defenseless people dead or wounded and made millions displaced in countries such as Syria, Libya, Iraq, Afghanistan and Yemen,” he pointed out.
The Iranian parliament speaker recalled the “shameful crimes” committed by terrorist groups such as the ISIL, and said, “The twin terrorist attacks in Tehran are only an examples of it.”
