MOSCOW, August 13. /TASS/. The Chairman of the Federation Council Committee on international Affairs Konstantin Kosachev considers that the approval of the Iranian Parliament increase funding for missile program – a natural response to tougher sanctions from the United States.
The Iranian Parliament on 13 August, voted for the bill, providing an additional $520 million to the program of ballistic missiles, as well as to expand the activities of the Islamic revolutionary guard Corps (IRGC) in the region. The bill, developed in response to new US sanctions against the Islamic Republic, was adopted by majority of votes.
“Naturally. This is what happens when one country – the United States believes that only her all you can (and should), but the others did not, because “not necessary,” he wrote Sunday on his page on Facebook.
He also stressed that “the world can be sustained only on principles of equality of rights States,” however, this does not relieve States of their obligations to the international community.
