One of the issues doing the rounds over the last couple of days, is that the US Congress will have to approve the deal before it can be ratified.
Obviously living at the end of the world (NZ) I missed something, I was under the impression that the talks were under the auspices of the UN and any agreement would go back to the security council or the general council for approval.
Individual countries may choose not to ratify the deal and could continue with their own sanctions, others may accept the deal and stand by the approval of the UN.
The tone of the statements by US officials seem to contradict this and gives the US total sanction of the deal via the US Congress.
Having lived in the US over past few years and seen the working of the US Congress God help us, the whole world would be at the mercy of right wing war mongers, who now control both houses of Congress.
Anybody out there with a better understanding of the procedure for ratification of any deal and give me peace of mind.
