Iran's Foreign Minister Zarif and head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran Salehi talk outside with aides after a morning negotiation session with U.S. Secretary of State Kerry in LausanneBy Patricia Zengerle WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The U.S. Senate voted overwhelmingly on Thursday to pass a bill giving Congress the right to review, and potentially reject, an international agreement with Iran aimed at keeping it from developing nuclear weapons. The 98-1 vote sent the measure to the House of Representatives, which could consider it as soon as next week. The White House said President Barack Obama would sign it into law if it also passes the House, as expected, without significant changes. “I look forward to House passage of this bill to hold President Obama’s administration accountable,” John Boehner, the Republican speaker of the House, said in a statement supporting the bill shortly after the Senate vote.
