Mon Jul 20, 2015 18:10:48

The 15-member United Nations Security Council on Monday unanimously adopted a resolution endorsing a document Iran and major world powers recently finalized on Iran's nuclear program, Al-Alam News Network reports.

The resolution had been negotiated as part of diplomatic talks between Iran and the Group 5+1 (Russia, China, the US, Britain, France and Germany) in Vienna.

Iran and the Group 5+1 (also known as the P5+1 or E3+3) on July 14 concluded more than two weeks of intensive talks in Austria. The negotiations resulted in a comprehensive 159-page document on Iran’s nuclear program.

According to the resolution, seven previous UN resolutions on Iran will be terminated when the International Atomic Energy Agency submits a report to the council verifying that Iran has implemented certain nuclear-related measures.

The European Union had also approved the final text of Iran nuclear deal on Monday.

US President Barack Obama's administration has also sent the nuclear agreement to the Congress, which has 60 days to review it.
