The Trump administration has not indicated whether the president would sign or veto the bill, and appears to have already changed its position. Bob Corker, R-Tenn., told reporters, according to Reuters.

The bill, which would also impose new sanctions on Iran and North Korea, passed in a near-unanimous vote of 419-3 on July 25.

Earlier versions of the bill were slow-moving after concerns from oil and gas companies interested in doing business with Russian partners and pushback from Democrats over a provision that would prevent the minority party from raising motions to block sanctions rollbacks.

"The multitude of threats posed to our national security by Iran, Russia, and North Korea can not be understated", Speaker Paul Ryan noted following the vote.

The bill, which had the support of both Republicans and Democrats in the House, aims to punish Russian Federation for its 2014 annexation of Crimea from Ukraine and over conclusions by United States intelligence agencies that it interfered in the USA election. "I happen to believe all three countries should be sanctioned".

But the moves were more politically and economically hard for European Union countries, many of which have far more extensive trade and energy relationships with Moscow.

Before the fight over North Korea, the sanctions bill languished in the House for weeks amid multiple procedural disputes, which prompted Democrats accusing Republicans of stalling on behalf of the White House.


Corker also hailed the congressional oversight language that the White House had resisted as a bid by lawmakers to grow "more and more relevant, to garner back the powers we have given to the executive branch".

Son-in-law and White House adviser Jared Kushner is among those to have been under the spotlight recently.

The bill, which includes a provision that allows Congress to stop any effort by Mr Trump to ease existing sanctions on Russian Federation, will now be sent to the White House for the President to sign into law or veto.

It's said in the past that the president supports sanctions in general, but wants more flexibility on handling them.

The prospects of Russia-U.S. cooperation in the struggle against terrorism are growing less likely with the latest passage of sanctions, said Frants Klintsevich, first deputy head of the Russian Federation Council's Committee on Defense and Security.

The bill is likely to complicate President Trump's hopes of improving relations with Russian Federation.

"These three regimes in different parts of the world are threatening vital US interests, and they are destabilizing their neighbors", House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Edward R. Royce (R-Calif.) said Tuesday.
