USA: Obama Signs the Pentagon budget for 2013


President Barack Obama signed Thursday the Finance Act 2013 for the Pentagon, which amounted to 633 billion dollars, said the press service of the White House.

The document was approved by the U.S. Congress early last December.

The text includes funding for the withdrawal of U.S. troops from Afghanistan and the implementation of a new round of sanctions against Iran. The Finance Act also prohibits the Pentagon to conduct transactions with the Russian arms exporter Rosoboronexport suspected by U.S. Senators to support the regime of President Bashar al-Assad.
