Lindsey Graham, South Carolina representative to the Senate, on Monday said that the Senate will put to vote a bill in early April which will made it a necessity that any deal with Iran must be first addressed by the Congress.
Graham who was speaking in the US Council on Foreign Relations said that representatives from both Republican and Democrat parties hold that any permanent revocation of sanctions against Iran will not be possible without congressional consent.
I believe that this makes a lot of sense and this is something that the Congress must do with this president or any other president, he maintained.
He expressed optimism that the bill will pass, depriving Obama of vetoing it as the US president had vowed.
Iran and the US, which leads the group 5+1, are in intense talks over Tehran’s nuclear program.
They are trying to reach a comprehensive deal whereby Iran would limit its nuclear activities and the West will in turn lift sanctions on Iran’s economy.
