U.S. Congress moves bill threatening Iran nuclear deal

November 16, 2017

The U.S. Congress has taken another measure that make it more difficult for Iran to purchase commercial aircraft from firms that do business in the United States.

A new bill called the Strengthening Oversight of Iran’s Access to Finance Act was approved by the House Financial Services Committee on Tuesday. The move comes as a blow to the 2015 nuclear deal that Iran signed with six world powers.

“Iran would view [the bill’s] enactment into law as a breach of the JCPOA,” Kenneth Katzman, an Iran expert at the Congressional Research Service, was quoted by Al-Monitor as saying.
