Wow! Israel’s PM Netanyahu was set to send lobbyists into U.S. Congress to add criticism: “It’s a bad deal!” Netanyahu and the hardliners on the Hill can have long discussions amongst themselves as Iran has already gotten U.N. sanctions relief and economic powerful nations are lining up their delegations to close deals with Iran. U.S. will not restore diplomatic ties, however ally Great Britain has already announced ties will be restored by the end of 2015, opening embassies in their respective countries.
Media doesn’t carry this news as the item is under the radar with news coming out of Europe, an major attack inside the Turkish border near Kobani and the re-established ties between the U.S. and Cuba. Is Congress closed due to holidays for its members?
The UN Security Council (UNSC) has unanimously endorsed a draft resolution that would turn into international law the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) reached between Iran and the P5+1 group of countries over the Islamic Republic’s nuclear program.
All 15 members of the UNSC voted for the draft UN resolution in New York on Monday, setting the stage for the lifting of Security Council sanctions against Iran.
“The draft resolution has been adopted unanimously,” announced New Zealand ambassador Gerard van Bohemen, whose country holds the current presidency of the UN Security Council.
The text of the draft UN resolution calls for the “full implementation” of the Vienna agreement “on the timetable established,” and urges UN member countries to facilitate the process.
