The Final “Ok” on the Iranian Deal

By Kate Barton

On Wednesday, October 14, the Iranian Guardian Council passed the Iranian nuclear program deal, the final step before its implementation. The deal was passed by an absolute majority. The votes were 161 for, 59 against, and 13 abstaining. The council held debates over whether the deal went against their constitution and Sharia Law, which they decided it did not.

The Iranian Deal calls for supervision over and cuts in all Iranian nuclear development and in return, economic sanctions will be lifted from Iran. This proposal sparked heated debate between many Americans, but was approved. Five other world powers helped develop the deal, including China, Russia, France, the U.K., and Germany.

Now, with Iran and the U.S. in agreement, the deal can and will be implemented.
