U.N. Security Council Signs Off on Iran Nuclear Deal

The United Nations Security Council unanimously agreed to the nuclear deal between Iran and six world powers on Monday.
The resolution, which will expire in 10 years, also allows for a “snap back” mechanism for U.N. sanctions to go back in place in case Iran reneges on the agreement.
It also calls on the International Atomic Energy Agency to “undertake the necessary verification and monitoring of Iran’s nuclear commitments.”
The agreement still faces hurdles in Congress, where many have argued that lawmakers should be able to vote on the deal before the Security Council removes the sanctions.
