White House Closer To Securing Iran Nuclear Deal In Senate

By

Democratic Senator Barbara Mikulski has become the 34th member of the Senate to come out in favor of the Iran nuclear agreement, and allowing President Barack Obama’s top foreign policy legacy to survive 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.
