Iran vows measures against new US sanctions

The Senate voted almost unanimously on Thursday for legislation to impose new sanctions on Iran over its ballistic missile program and other activities not related to the worldwide nuclear agreement reached with the United States and other world powers.

Iran today slammed new sanctions adopted by the US Senate.

Sen. Bob Corker, R-Tenn., introduced the bill, which now must pass in the House of Representatives and be signed by President Donald Trump before being enacted.

"Iran's ballistic missile program, the regime's support for global terrorism, and its blatant and egregious human rights violations should not be ignored".

Bridgeworth LLC Acquires New Stake in STARWOOD PROPERTY TRUST, INC. (STWD)
Stratos Wealth Partners LTD. boosted its position in shares of STARWOOD PROPERTY TRUST, INC .by 1.5% in the first quarter. This suggests that the broad sum of capital flow in the stock has been generally negative over the recent period.

The Iranian spokesperson rejected as "completely unjustified and illegal" allegations leveled in the bill about the country's missile capabilities.

"Iran's armed forces will continue to defend the country's security and interests", the foreign ministry spokesman said.

He noted that the US Senate's new move was not "unpredictable" due to the history of Washington's enmity toward the noble Iranian nation, adding it is in line with the US acts of hostility toward the Islamic Republic.

Tehran "will take reciprocal and adequate measures to guarantee its national interests", foreign ministry spokesman Bahram Ghassemi said, quoted by ISNA news agency.

Resolution 2231, passed by the 15-memebr United Nations Security Council in July 2015, has endorsed the 159-page JCPOA.

In a series of Twitter messages in late May, former Secretary of State John Kerry, who was heavily involved in drafting the nuclear agreement with Iran, urged the senators not to move ahead with legislation saying "this is not the moment for a new Iran bill".

Under the resolution, Iran is "called upon" not to undertake any activity related to missiles "designed to be capable of" delivering nuclear weapons. The bill seeks to target businesses and financial institutions that have commercial dealings with any entity designated by the USA for playing a role in Iran's ballistic missile program.
