White House secures Iran nuclear deal in Senate vote

Published September 2nd, 2015 - 03:05 GMT

Democratic Senator Barbara Mikulski has become the 34th member of the Senate, who came in favor of the Iran nuclear agreement, surviving President Barack Obama’s top foreign policy legacy in Congress.

Mikulski announced on Wednesday that she would support the deal reached between Iran and the P5+1 group of countries -- the US, Britain, France, Russia, China, and Germany – in the Austrian capital, Vienna, on July 14.

“I have concluded that this Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action is the best option available to block Iran from having a nuclear bomb," the Maryland Democrat said in a statement.

"For these reasons, I will vote in favor of this deal. However, Congress must also reaffirm our commitment to the safety and security of Israel,” she added.
