Iran’s Parliament to Decide about 13 Anti-Sanction Bills

TEHRAN Vice-Speaker of the Iranian Parliament Mohammad Javad Jamali Nobandegani announced that the legislative body has received 13 draft bills of plans to counter the US unilateral sanctions against the country.

Jamali Nobandegani said on Wednesday that the 13 plans are currently being discussed at the National Security and Foreign Policy Commission of the Parliament.

"The meeting of the Foreign Ministry, the Central Bank, the Ministry of Defense, the Central Insurance of Republic of Iran, the Ministry of Health, were held at Parliament's Research Center.

He added that the Research Center at the commission's meeting today handed over to the Commission the plans for countermeasures with regard to US inhumane actions against the Islamic Republic of Iran, presented in the form of 13 drafts to the commission.

The Deputy Chairman of the National Security and Foreign Policy Commission said the government's obligation to identify and disclose the role of the United States in cyber-terrorism, the government's obligation to pursue the role of the United States in sanctioning food, agricultural commodities and medicines government's obligation to cope with US actions in regard to bioterrorism, the government's commitment to pursuing the role of the United States in the killing of innocent people in Yemen through Saudi-led military, registry and intelligence support and the obligation of the government to track and expose the role of the US preventive measures in the transfer of international humanitarian assistance to the Iranian Red Crescent Society for flood-hit victims are among the plans presented to deal with America's hostile measures against Iran.

The government's obligation to pursue and publicly declare violations of international treaties by the United States, the government's obligation to pursue US offensive actions against the Islamic Republic of Iran over the past four decades and its follow-up to international legal tribunals, and the government's obligation to pursue and proclaim America's role in the formation and the development and support for the ISIS terrorist group and the transfer of the commanders of this terrorist group from Syria to Iraq and Afghanistan are among the other initiatives proposed to the National Security Commission of the National Assembly, according to the lawmaker.

Early in May, Governor of the Central Bank of Iran(CBI) Abdolnasser Hemmati announced six new tactics of the monetary body to counter the negative measures of the US unilateral sanctions against Tehran.

Hemmati outlined the six tactics of the CBI as "efforts to maintain and strengthen the relative stability of the foreign exchange market, adjusting foreign exchange policies for boosting non-oil exports and the return of currency to the country's economic activities, providing currency for the essential goods to support vulnerable populations, activating open market operations with an aim to control security rates and helping the government to issue treasury bills, providing liquidity and capital to maintain and boost production through the banking system, within the framework of plans designed to control liquidity growth, and creating financial mechanisms with neighboring and friendly countries, and establishing interactions between the Ministry of Industry, Mine and Trade and Customs and the Central Bank for imports via a barter trade system".

Late in April, Iranian First Vice President Eshaq Jahangiri underlined that his country is enjoying huge economic potentials and capabilities which are not realized by the US government, asserting that Washington's inadequate knowledge of Tehran's economic plans will lead to failure of sanctions.

Jahangiri said that the recent plan by the administration of US President Donald Trump to reduce Iran's oil exports to zero is doomed to fail, because Americans ignore the country's immense economic potentialities.

"They (Americans) seek to cripple the country's economy and pile up social pressure (on the government) through reducing the government's sources of revenue but thanks to plans made (to counter such measures) this move will certainly fail, Iran's first vice president said.

Jahangiri further said the Iranian people have already been through many tough days, but they are still steadfast and will by no means forget injustices and pressures, adding, "They will give an appropriate response to those behind these pressures in due time."

"The Americans must consider real statistics and understand that their plans to make Iran's economy collapse are doomed to fail in view of the country's unique potentialities," he said.

The Iranian vice president noted that Tehran would export as much oil as it deems necessary and called on all officials to come up with strategies and means to find new sources of revenue for the country.
