Republicans want to offer new U.S. sanctions against Russia and China

Member of Congress from Florida, Republican Greg Stuby told about the plans to propose new sanctions against Russia, Iran and China this week.

"Yes, this is expected to be submitted tomorrow and will explain in detail the new sanctions, and international foreign policy approach to Russia, China and Iran," said Stuby on air of TV channel Fox Business, adding that the new proposal is associated with the expiration of the arms embargo on Iran.

The Senator also noted that Republicans will propose to prohibit U.S. financial assistance to Lebanon.

Earlier on Monday, the U.S. Treasury added to the list of anti-Iran sanctions more than 100 ships and transport companies of Iran.

Iran and the six international negotiators in July 2015 reached agreement on the settlement of the longstanding problem of the Iranian atom. Months of negotiations concluded with the adoption of a joint comprehensive plan of action (SVPD), which is completely removed from Iran's previously imposed economic and financial sanctions by the UN security Council, US and EU. The agreement in particular provided that the arms embargo would be withdrawn from Iran within five years, the supply of arms possible before, but only with the permission of the UN security Council. The deal in its original form lived for three years: in may 2018, the United States announced its unilateral withdrawal from her and the restoration of tougher sanctions against Tehran. However, because of the formal deal came only USA, the rest of the participants must comply with a condition on the abolition of the arms embargo.
