Russia, Iran, NK to face tough sanctions as US Senate and House of Representatives clear bill seeking it

Despite the US government’s growing affinity towards the Russian government, the US Senate and House of Representatives have approved the bill seeking stricter sanction on Russia, Iran and North Korea. The White House, which has been trying to reinstate the friendly relation with Moscow since Donald Trump’s presidential inauguration, has the power to veto the bill. But, it is unlikely that the leader would adopt such a move. If such a move is adopted, it will give a wrong message to the public and it is like admitting that the Trump administration, which has been accused of seeking Russian’s help to win the presidential election, has relationships with them. It is interesting to note that in both houses, no serious objections have been raised against the bill. The bill has been presented in the backdrop of the ongoing investigation into the Russian government’s alleged involvement in the Trump’s victory, that is why the news regarding the sanction has gained an unusual prominence and no house members have bothered to oppose the bill in the house. The ongoing political circus around the question ‘whether Russia meddled in the 2016 US presidential election’ has successfully generated a feeling that Moscow needs to be punished. Anyway, the actual issue that led to the sanction has been Russia’s annexation of Crimea, North Korea’s aggressive missile and nuclear tests and Iran’s nuclear policy and alleged terror funding policy.
