As the U. N. Security Council on Monday backed Iran ' s nuclear agreement with world powers, U. S President declared that a positive sign. President Barack Obama says the UN Security Council’s vote to approve the Iran nuclear deal shows there is a broad consensus that the agreement is the best way to ensure that Iran does not get a nuclear weapon. The European Union also approved the deal, which curbs Iran's nuclear program in return for easing economic sanctions, while Germany rapidly moved to revive its once close trading relationship with Tehran. Obama told reporters today he’s hopeful Congress “will pay attention to that broad-based consensus.” Congress has 60 days to review the agreement, which has attracted heavy opposition from Republican legislators. The Security Council unanimously endorsed the landmark nuclear deal today and authorized a series of measures leading to the end of UN sanctions that have hurt Iran’s economy.
