    WASHINGTON, July 25 (Xinhua) -- The U.S. House of Representatives on Tuesday overwhelmingly approved a bill that will slap tougher sanctions on Russia, Iran and the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK).

    Congressmen voted 419-3 to pass the bill, with three Republicans -- Justin Amash Zapatillas Hombre Nike Air Vapormax KPU TPU Negras Mint España , Jimmy Duncan and Thomas Massie -- voting against the bill.

    The overwhelming support for the bill, which was voted under special procedures to pass with a two-thirds majority, means that the House could override a presidential veto.

    The measure aims at targeting key Russian officials in retaliation for Moscow's alleged interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election, as well as sanctions against Iran and the DPRK in response to their weapons programs.

    "These three regimes in different parts of the world are threatening vital U.S. interests, and they are destabilizing their neighbors," House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Ed Royce said Tuesday. "It is well past time that we forcefully respond."

    In addition to imposing new sanctions on the three countries, the bill also grants Congress the power to block Trump from lifting sanctions on Russia. This came despite that Trump administration officials had called on lawmakers to grant "flexibility" to the White House in dealing with Russia.

    According to the bill Zapatillas Nike Air Max TN Plus Hombre Azules Negras Baratas , Congress will have power to veto any decision made by the president that would "significantly alter" U.S. foreign policy in connection with Russia.

    "This strong oversight is necessary. It is appropriate. After all, it is Congress that the Constitution empowers to regulate commerce with foreign nations," Royce said, according to news website The Hill.

    The White House on Sunday signaled that President Donald Trump would accept the new legislation despite initial opposition.

    "We support where the legislation is now, and will continue to work with the House and Senate to put those tough sanctions in place on Russia," said newly appointed White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.


    PARIS, May 30 (Xinhua) -- Noel le Graet Zapatillas Nike Air Max TN Plus Hombre Negras Rojas España , president of the French Football Federeation (FFF) confirmed Saturday to L'Equipe that he voted for Sepp Blatter in Friday's FIFA presidential re-election.

    ""Since we won the bid for organization of the 2019 women's World Cup Mujer Nike Air Max TN Plus Zapatillas Rosa Blancas Baratas , we worked very well with the employees of FIFA,"" Le Graet explained.

    The French boss had told local TV ""Europe 1"" the same reason of him supporting Blatter before Friday's election, but modified to say he might need more thoughts on it after UEFA head Michel Platini asked Blatter to step down as FIFA president late on Thursday.

    Platini told media in Zurich that he'd ask Blatter to step down and urged national associations to vote for Al Hussein.

    ""Ali, if UEFA had not voted for him, he would not have much of a voice,"" Le Graet, who had once said Platini could be the best choice for the presidency of FIFA Nike Air Max TN Plus Comprar Zapatillas Mujer Blancas , commented Saturday.
