Delaney Votes for Legislation to Impose Sanctions on Russia, North Korea and Iran

Jul 25, 2017
Press Release

WASHINGTON – Today, Congressman John K. Delaney (MD-6) voted for the Countering America’s Adversaries Through Sanctions Act (H.R. 3364). This legislation is a multifaceted approach to combatting acts of aggression from Russia, North Korea and Iran. As a result of recent ballistic missile tests and repeated human rights violations committed by both Iran and North Korea, this bill expands and strengthens sanctions on both nations. Furthermore, in response to Russian encroachment in Ukraine and their efforts to undermine our nation’s cybersecurity during the 2016 presidential elections, this bill requires congressional review before certain Russian sanctions are lifted.

 

Delaney releases the following statement:

 

“I am proud to vote for this legislation, which sends a strong, clear message to Russia, North Korea and Iran that they will each be held accountable for acts of aggression that threaten to destabilize the world. We must remain steadfast to our commitment to maintain peace and security and ensure U.S. security interests are protected.”
