EghtesadOnline: The US Senate on Thursday approved legislation extending the Iran Sanctions Act (ISA) for another ten years.

According to C Span, the American Senators unanimously supported the renewal of the ISA. 

The report said the Act would be expired at the end of 2016, according to IRNA.

The ISA, which passed in the House in a 419-1 vote a fortnight ago, now goes to US President Barak Obama’s desk. 

The scale of support indicates a veto would be overridden in any case by Omaba.

To this end, Supreme Leader of Islamic Revolution, Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei had said extension of an expired sanction is no different from imposing new sanctions.

The Supreme Leader had said the United States has undertaken not to impose fresh sanctions in the context of the nuclear deal struck on July 14, 2015, but, the US Congress reneged on commitments to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action by extension of the expired sanctions.
