Iranian President Hassan Rouhani has obliged the country’s Foreign Ministry to implement a law recently approved by the Parliament aimed at counteracting the US aggressions and regional adventures.
In a letter to the Foreign Ministry, Rouhani urged the foreign ministry to implement the new law approved by the Iranian lawmakers.
The law entitled “Counteracting the US human rights violations and adventurous and terrorist moves in the region” was approved following Washington’s provocative regional acts.
The general outlines of the motion were passed with 240 votes in favour and one abstention in early August.
The 27-article draft was endorsed after it was brought forward in Parliament by the National Security and Foreign Policy Commission in July.
The move came after the US House of Representatives and then the Senate passed a sweeping package of bills on sanctions against Iran, Russia, and North Korea.
The US legislation would impose mandatory penalties on people involved in Iran’s ballistic missile program and anyone who does business with them.
