US House passes Russia, Iran, North Korea sanctions bill


The US House of Representatives on Tuesday overwhelmingly passed a bill that places restrictions on President Donald Trump from loosening sanctions on Russia, a measure that could tie his hands as he seeks a reset in relations with Moscow.

Lawmakers voted 419-3 to pass the legislation, which also imposes a new round of sanctions on Russia, Iran and North Korea.


The bill "tightens the screws on our most dangerous adversaries in order to keep Americans safe," House Speaker Paul Ryan said after the vote.

The legislation must now go to the Senate, where it is likely to pass before being sent to the president's desk, possibly as early as August, Deutche Welle reports.
