New Anti-Iran Move in US Senate

Two US Senators are crafting new measures to impose fresh sanctions against Iran over its recent ballistic missile tests just weeks after last year’s nuclear deal between Iran and world powers came into force.
“We are looking at ways of having a much stronger pushback on the violations that took place,” Republican Senator Bob Corker, chairman of the US Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said of his proposed sanctions, the Washington Post reported on Tuesday.
Senator Bob Menendez also announced earlier that he is planning a package of “actions that we should be considering against Iran outside the nuclear portfolio.”
The measures, which are expected to come up later this month, will be the Congress’ latest attempts to press President Barack Obama to target Iran over its missile tests.
Iran has repeatedly announced that test of missiles is an issue related to the defense of its territorial integrity and has nothing to do with the nuclear deal.
