Germany Looks to Restore Trading Ties With Iran

Showing the broad international consensus on the P5+1 nuclear deal with Iran, both the UN Security Council and the European Union have publicly approved the deal today in unanimous votes praising the pact.
.
The EU vote lifts broad amounts of economic sanctions against Iran, and German officials moved quickly to restore trade ties with Iran, hoping to get a leg up on other countries scrambling to forge new economic ties with Iran’s industrial companies, which are in dire need of major upgrades.
.
The votes underscore just how isolated opponents to the deal have become recently, amounting at this point to a handful of Iranian ultraconservatives, the US Congressional leadership, and the Israeli government. With Israel not a party to the deal and the Iranian ultraconservatives in the minority, Congress is the only possible ones to “block” the deal.
.
For the US Congress to actually block the Iran deal, they would need a two-thirds majority in both houses to override a veto. Though Congressional leaders say they believe they can do that, and the Israel Lobby is putting considerable month toward that, it is seen as extremely unlikely.
