The UN Security Council has unanimously adopted a resolution that will clear a path for international sanctions on Iran’s economy to be lifted.
On condition that Iran respects the agreement to the letter, seven UN resolutions passed since 2006 to sanction Iran will be gradually terminated, according to the resolution’s text.
“The draft resolution has been adopted unanimously,” Gerard van Bohemen, ambassador of New Zealand, which holds the current presidency of the Security Council, announced after Monday’s vote.
