Chairman of the US Senate Foreign Relations Committee Robert Menendez says that the Biden administration has committed to submitting any agreement on Iran’s nuclear program to Congress for review.

Speaking at a press conference in Jerusalem, Menendez says a review would be conducted by his committee and that there would be a vote on such a deal, although said he was unsure if the outcome of that vote “would meet the threshold under the law to nullify the agreement.”

US Senator Lindsey Graham adds that US support for Israel will remain unchanged regardless of the outcome of upcoming midterm elections in the US for Congress.

“No matter what happens in November, the assistance that Israel enjoys from the American government will continue,” says Graham during a press conference at the King David Hotel in Jerusalem. “The relationship between the US and Israel will remain strong and unshakable.”
