U.N. Jumps on Board With Iran Nuke Deal
They’re getting this show on the road. The U.N. Security Council has unanimously endorsed the deal between Iran and several other world powers that lifts international sanctions in exchange for curbing its nuclear program. This is a major step: After two years of talks, this sets the actual deal in motion, though the U.N. can reimpose sanctions if Iran breaks its word. Now the International Atomic Energy Agency has to submit a report on Iran’s progress on its end of the deal before any more action toward lifting sanctions needs to be taken.
