TEHRAN, IRAN (IRIB/CNN) -  After the U.S. House of Representatives passed a bill that included new sanctions on Russia, North Korea and Iran, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani stated on Wednesday that Iran will respond to those sanctions.

Rouhani didn't say how Iran would respond during the cabinet meeting that was broadcasted on Iranian state TV.

He said only that the "U.S. hostility" would generate a response.
