EghtesadOnline: Iran's Majlis (Parliament) is to review the 20-article urgent plan to counter Senate sanctions on Iran, Head of Majlis (parliament) Research Center Kazem Jalali said.

The plan has been prepared by members of Majlis National Security and Foreign Policy Commission, Jalali told Islamic Republic News Agency (IRNA). 

The urgent plan consists of 10 sections like US support of terrorism, human rights violation, supporting Iran Armed Forces, countering US economic sanctions, supporting Iranian nationals, he said.

Majlis speaker Ali Larijani on June 11 session urged National Security and Foreign Policy Commission to prepare the mentioned plan.

On June 15, the US Senate voted for a legislation to impose non-nuclear sanctions on Iran for its defense missile programs. They voted 98-2 in favor of the legislation.

Bipartisan negotiations also led to the bill including expanded sanctions on Russia, in response to its intrusion into Ukraine, efforts to meddle in the 2016 election and its support for the Syrian regime.

Republican Senator Rand Paul from Kentucky and Bernie Sanders, an independent from Vermont, were only two 'no' votes.
