Congress Reaches Deal On Sanctions Bill For Russia, Iran, North Korea

WA, July 22 (Reuters) – Oughout. S. Republicans and Democrats reach agreement on legislation that allows brand new sanctions against Russia, Iran and today also North Korea, leading congressional Democrats said on Saturday.

The Countering Irans Destabilizing Activities Act handed the Senate a month ago unfortunately he held up in the House of Representatives right after Republicans proposed including North Korea sanctions in the bill.

Both chambers associated with Congress will have to pass the modified legislation.

House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi, however , expressed concern that simply by including North Korea the laws could face delays in the United states senate.

While we support the tougher sanctions on North Korea, which the Home has already passed, I am concerned that will adding them to this bill instead of stand alone legislation will cause further procedural delays within the Senate,
