MADRID, Jan. 6 (EUROPE PRESS) –
The president of the House of Representatives of the United States, Nancy Pelosi, announced on Sunday that the agency will vote in the coming days a resolution to “limit” the military actions of the president, Donald Trump, against Iran.
Pelosi said in a statement published on the website of the Presidency of the House of Representatives that the bombing that killed Iran’s prominent general Qasem Soleimani in Iraq last week was “provocative” and “disproportionate”.
“This action endangered our military, diplomats and others by posing a risk of serious aggravation of tensions with Iran,” he said, before stressing that “as members of Congress, the main responsibility is to keep Americans safe.” .
“For this reason, we are concerned that the Administration will carry out this action without consulting Congress and without respecting the war powers guaranteed to Congress by the Constitution,” he explained.
In this way, he has revealed that the House of Representatives will vote “a Resolution on Powers of War” with the aim of “limiting the military actions of the president with respect to Iran.”
Pelosi has stressed that this resolution “reaffirms the long-standing responsibilities of Congress supervision, ordering that, if there is no further action by Congress, the military hostilities of the Administration related to Iran will cease in 30 days.”
Pelosi herself said on Saturday that the data presented to Congress by the White House on the attack that ended the life of Soleimani, head of the Quds Force of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard, pose “more questions than answers.”
“The document raises serious and urgent questions about the timing, form and justification of the administration to face hostilities with Iran,” said Pelosi, regarding the notification of the beginning of hostilities with Iran.
In this regard, he assured that the “unusual” decision to classify this document as a whole aggravates his concerns and suggests that Congress and the Americans “are left aside” in relation to national security.
Pelosi also warned that the Trump Administration, with its “provocative and disproportionate military commitment,” continues to “endanger” diplomats, US citizens and their allies.
“As president of the House of Representatives, I reiterate my call to the Administration for a complete and immediate briefing on the military commitment to Iran and the next steps to be taken,” he settled.
