Korean Interdiction and Modernization of Sanctions Act

March 21, 2017

Passed in House

Within this broader bill expanding and strengthening sanctions on North Korea, there was one provision that would require the president to report to Congress annually on the extent of the cooperation between Iran and North Korea on their respective nuclear, ballistic missile, chemical weapons, biological weapons, and conventional weapons programs. The president would also be required to determine if any reported activities constitute a violation of UNSC Resolution 2231, which endorsed the 7/14/15 Iran nuclear deal (see JPS 45[1]).

This bill ultimately became law in the context of the Countering America’s Adversaries Through Sanctions Act (*H.R. 3364 of 7/24/17).
