UN Security Council endorses Iran nuclear deal

TEHRAN, Jul. 20 (MNA) – The United Nations Security Council has approved a resolution at the UN headquarters in New York on July 20, 2015.

Rueters report said that the United Nations Security Council on Monday had endorsed a deal to limit Iran's nuclear program in return for sanctions relief, but it will be able to re-impose UN 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 5+1.

In return for lifting US, EU and UN sanctions, Iran will be subjected to long-term limits on its nuclear program.

The European Union approved the Iran nuclear deal on Monday. US President Barack Obama's administration has sent the nuclear agreement to Congress, which has the next 60 days to review it.

Russian UN Ambassador Vitaly Churkin told the council 'a reserve of trust' had been built up among parties to the nuclear deal and that he hoped the 'invaluable experience' of working together could be used to help resolve other crisis situations.
