UN to seek vote on Iran Nuke Deal


355456-iran-nuke-talks-reutersAfter the 6 main powers had finalised the most significant nuclear deal of all time, with Iran, in Vienna, on Tuesday, Iran agreed to long-term constraints on a nuclear programme that the West suspected was aimed at the creation of an atomic bomb.

Iran has expressed itself by saying that there is no intention of causing harm and its work is purely peaceful. In return, the United States, European Union and United Nations have decided to lift sanctions on Iran.

With Iran presently being the centre of attention, it has been specified that under the agreement, any United Nations sanctions relief would be simultaneous with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) verifying “implementation of agreed nuclear-related measures by Iran.”

The Iran nuclear deal is expected to move to New York next week, where the U.N. Security Council will adopt a resolution lifting all international sanctions related to the Islamic Republic’s nuclear sanctions.  But a U.N. arms embargo consisting inspectors from the united nations organisation will remain in place for five years and one on ballistic missiles will continue for eight years.

U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Samantha Power said ,”The United States will submit a draft Security Council resolution “in the coming days” on behalf of the five powers, Germany and the European Union.  She said it will endorse the deal and “take other important steps, including replacing the existing Security Council sanctions architecture with the new, binding restrictions agreed on in Vienna.”

Opposition in the 15-nation Council is unlikely, as the five veto holding Council members – Britain, China, France, Russia and the United States – are all parties to the deal.
