REIMPOSING U.N. SANCTIONS: If one of the parties to the nuclear deal, like the United States, determines that Iran is not fulfilling its commitments, it can ask for a Security Council vote on a new resolution to continue the lifting of all U.N sanctions resolutions on Iran.
Biden, considered the closest Obama administration official to then organized Jewish community, said Monday he has fielded much skepticism among Jews since the major powers and Iran reached a sanctions relief-for nuclear restrictions deal last week.
Passage of the UN resolution triggers a complex set of coordinated steps agreed by Iran during almost two years of talks with the United States, Russia, China, Britain, France, Germany and the European Union.
“Monday’s events at the United Nations, Washington and Havana leave no doubt that we have entered the most dangerous phase of the Obama presidency in which the president is flat-out abandoning America’s vital national security interests to cozy up to the world’s most reprehensible regimes”.
The United Nations Security Council and the European Union both approved the Iran nuclear deal.
The American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) spent what appears to be a record $1.67 million during the first half of the year as it lobbied Congress to enact legislation giving lawmakers the ability to review an Iran nuclear deal, which the group strongly opposes.
At any time, the US or any of its partners in the deal could bring an allegation of violations of the agreement to a new dispute-resolution mechanism.
He also sent a message to the U.S. Congress, calling them not to lift the sanctions on Iran.
In the meantime, the Majlis is taking a dim view of the embargo on ballistic missile technology, extended to eight years in the agreement.
As soon as the council receives an IAEA report confirming that the nuclear program is entirely peaceful, the seven United Nations sanctions resolutions against Tehran will be terminated and replaced by the terms of Tuesday’s resolution.
Perdue said he would work to build a veto-proof majority of the Senate to reject the deal.
If the council fails to vote on a resolution, the sanctions will be automatically reimposed.
The Republican-run Congress can pass a resolution of disapproval, but Obama has vowed to veto such an action.
In dueling appearances on Sunday television news shows, US Secretary of State John Kerry and Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz defended the agreement they spent years negotiating as the best hope for peace as well as a verifiable way of making sure Iran does not obtain a nuclear bomb.
