Nuclear Deal Approved by Iran Parliament


Hassan RouhaniIranian parliament passed a bill approving the country’s landmark nuclear deal with world powers on Tuesday, according to state news agency IRNA.

The vote was considered a victory for President Hassan Rouhani’s government, which reached the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) with world powers in July.

The bill passed a preliminary vote on Sunday and will now be presented to a clerical body for final approval and passage into law.
