Majlis Approves Plan to Combat Banking Sanctions

Members of Iran’s Parliament have ratified a single-urgency plan containing seven articles that propose measures to nullify or weaken the impact of sanctions the US plans to reimpose on the country’s banking and financial sectors in August.
The plan, ratified on July 4, emphasizes the speedy implementation of measures that have already been proposed or pursued at various levels. It was passed after 103 MPs voted in favor and 67 opposed it. 
It has now been referred to Majlis Economic Commission for further expert review, IRNA reported.
