UN Security Council gearing up to ratify nuke deal

At the United Nations, the Security Council is preparing a resolution to endorse the deal restricting Iran’s nuclear development in exchange for the lifting of sanctions against Tehran.

French Ambassador Francois Delattre says the draft resolution will be presented to the council in coming days.

A senior Security Council diplomat says the US took the lead in drafting the resolution. Asked whether it’s likely to be approved within seven to 10 days, the diplomat says that’s the “right ballpark.”

The diplomat was not authorized to be identified and spoke on condition of anonymity.
