The United Nations Security Council on Monday endorsed a deal to curb Iran’s nuclear program in return for sanctions relief, but it will be able to re-impose U.N. penalties during the next decade if Tehran breaches the historic agreement.

The 15-member body unanimously adopted a resolution that was negotiated as part of the agreement reached in Vienna last week between Iran and the world’s major powers.

In return for lifting U.S., EU and U.N. sanctions, Iran will be subjected to long-term curbs on a nuclear program that the West suspected was aimed at creating an atomic bomb, but which Tehran says is peaceful.

 U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Samantha Power said the deal would make the world “safer and more secure.”

  1. Now let us see Congress try and overcome this vote. Even if they do, since the Iran deal isn’t a treaty but rather an executive agreement, the President doesn’t even need the consent of Congress. The vote will in effect be a Republican-sponsored measure of disapproval. That measure may well have new sanctions attached to it but, even if it does garner a super-majority, all this effort expended by the pro Israel lobby group will be a Pyrrhic victory to savor.

    No other country will honor those sanctions, including especially the other signatories (Britain, France, Germany, Russia, and China). This will merely underscore our weakness in the face of international opinion. Did someone say it was Russia that was isolated?

  2. Now for a unanimous resolution on Israel’s nuclear weapons and sanctions for using them, and litigation and war crimes tribunals for the perpetrators.
