US lawmakers reach deal on sanctions bill for Russia, Iran, N.Korea

WASHINGTON - US Republicans and Democrats have reached agreement on legislation that allows new sanctions against Russia, Iran and now also North Korea, leading congressional Democrats said on Saturday.

 

The Countering Iran's Destabilizing Activities Act passed the Senate a month ago but was held up in the House of Representatives after Republicans proposed including North Korea sanctions in the bill.

 

Both chambers of Congress will have to pass the revised legislation.
