US Senate panel votes for congressional review of Iran deal

Committee chairman Senator Bob Corker before the start of a meeting of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee on Capitol Hill April 14, 2015 in Washington, DCA US Senate panel approved a measure Tuesday that would give Congress input on the fate of any final international deal to curb Iran’s nuclear program. In a display of bipartisan cooperation on what has been a divisive issue, the Senate Foreign Relations Committee voted 19-0 in favor of allowing lawmakers to review and potentially reject the final accord. The vote came after panel chairman Bob Corker and top Democrat Ben Cardin struck a compromise on language in order to soothe concerns of the White House and some congressional Democrats. A framework deal reached in Switzerland marked a breakthrough in a 12-year standoff between Iran and the West, which asserts Tehran is seeking to acquire a nuclear bomb — a claim Iran denies.
