U.S. Senate passes resolution curbing Trump's ability to wage war with Iran, veto expected

美 하원 이어 상원도 대통령 무력사용 권한 제한…트럼프 정치적 타격

The U.S. Senate has passed a resolution to limit President Trump’s war powers against Iran.
For more on this and other news from around the world, let’s turn to our Yoon Jung-min.
Jung-min, tell us more.
Yes, the Senate has agreed to limit President Trump’s ability to wage war against Iran.
On Thursday, the Senate voted 55 to 45 for the War Powers Resolution.
Eight Senate Republicans joined the chamber’s Democrats to support the legislation.
The law requires President Trump to remove U.S. troops engaged in hostilities against Iran unless Congress declares war,… or authorizes the use of military force.
This aims to rebuke the president after the U.S. drone killing last month of Iranian military commander Qassem Soleimani in Baghdad.
Tehran’s retaliation has raised fears of a full-fledged war.
Take a listen.
「But the Senate just sent a clear shot across the bow. A bipartisan majority of senators don’t want the president waging war without congressional approval. That sums up the whole thing.」
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said she would bring the Senate measures up for a House vote this month.
And, of course, President Trump wouldn’t be happy.
Even if it passes the House, Trump is almost certain to veto it.
Congress can override the President’s veto,… when two-thirds of each House and Senate agree on it,… but that seems unlikely to happen.

Pneumonia virus in China about 80% similar to SARS: Researchers

“중국 우한폐렴 바이러스, 사스와 비슷… 유사도 80% 달해”

A mysterious pneumonia outbreak in the Chinese city of Wuhan that sickened dozens of people maybe a virus that’s from the same family as SARS.
According to South China Morning Post, researchers from China and Australia concluded that the new type of coronavirus is about 80 percent similar in genetic structure to the SARS virus, which killed hundreds of people in China and Hong Kong a few years ago.
Coronaviruses cause respiratory and intestinal diseases.
A Chinese researcher said the new coronavirus may have originated in bats and then spread to other animals and humans at a now-closed fish market in Wuhan.
Out of 41 patients, one died and seven are in critical condition.

N. Korea says it wasn't able to pay UN contributions due to financial sanctions

北 「금융제재로 유엔 분담금 못 내…제재 풀어달라」

North Korea claims it was unable to pay its contributions to the UN budget for the second year in a row, citing financial sanctions against the regime.
Radio Free Asia reported Wednesday that during a meeting of the Committee on Relations with the Host Country in February, a North Korean representative said that Pyeongyang is willing but unable to pay its contributions, worth 1-hundred-67-thousand U.S dollars for the year, due to closure of its banking channel.
The regime did not pay its share for last year, claiming it wasn’t able to transfer the money as the UNSC sanctioned North Korea’s Foreign Trade Bank, needed for overseas transactions.
However, an expert at the U.S. Center for National Interest says such claim is just a strategy to have sanctions removed.
