Iran Parliament approves anti-US bill

The parliament's majority voted for the bill, which was a response to the USA new sanctions against the Islamic Republic.

Iran's parliament voted Sunday to allocate 520 million USA dollars to develop missile program to fight the US "adventurism" and sanctions, state news agency IRNA reported.

Iran's parliament approved the first step of a bill to boost Tehran's missile program spending, on Sunday.

Olivier Giroud says courageous Arsenal never gave up against Leicester City
Arsenal have made a "huge breakthrough" in contract negotiations with playmaker Mesut Ozil , according to a recent report. It's only the second time in eight seasons that Arsene Wenger's side have secured three points in their opening fixture.

Iran's parliament on Sunday approved more than half a billion dollars in funding for the country's missile programme and foreign operations of the elite Revolutionary Guards in response to United States sanctions.

"The bill is backed by the foreign ministry and the government and is part of measures by the JCPOA supervision committee to confront the recent US Congress law", deputy foreign minister Abbas Araghchi.

After Larijani announced the vote results, lawmakers shouted: "Death to America".

The budget bill allocates $260m for the continuing development of the missile programme and $260 million for the Quds Force, Irna news agency reported.

USA dares China, takes naval warships to Chinese waters without permission
USA officials say the military will continue to sail, fly and operate wherever permitted by global law. China has ignored and dismissed the ruling as a sham.

Iran denies violating the United Nations resolution which endorsed the Tehran's 2015 nuclear deal, preventing them from conducting activities related to ballistic missiles created to deliver nuclear weapons.

A string of close encounters between U.S. ships and Iranian vessels in the Gulf in recent months has added to the tensions between the two countries.

They are obliged to, within a period of six months following the ratification of the bill, devise a comprehensive strategic plan to counter the USA threats.

It orders the foreign ministry and the judiciary to take measures to protect Iranians in U.S. prisons for violation of sanctions or facing persecution and extradition elsewhere.
