Iran Mulling Sanctions on 26 US Officials

Rapporteur of the Iranian parliament's National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Kazem Jalali said the 26 US officials have perpetrated crimes that amounted to blatant violation of human rights in Iraq, Afghanistan and other parts of the world.

He further underlined that the US officials have escalated terrorism in Iraq and Afghanistan by violence in the name of campaign against terrorism and some of them abetted drug trafficking.

Jalali did not mention the type of these punitive measures, but stressed that once the Iranian legislative body approves the plan, the US officials will be sanctioned and punitive measures will be envisaged for ignoring human rights in Iraq and Afghanistan and the other parts of the world.

Jalali said that the parliament would adopt its final decision on this issue on Tuesday.

The United States and its Western allies have already slapped sanctions on a number of Iranian officials over their involvement in the country's controversial nuclear program and alleged violations of human rights.
