UN Security Council to vote Monday morning on Iran nuclear deal

The United Nations Security Council is set to vote Monday morning on a resolution endorsing the Iran nuclear deal.

The resolution was circulated to all council members Wednesday by the United States. Council members also have been briefed by both Iran and the other countries that negotiated the landmark agreement to curb Iran's nuclear program.

With all five veto-wielding permanent members of the Security Council involved in the marathon Iran negotiations, the resolution's adoption Monday is certain.

The intricate deal places restrictions on Iran's nuclear program while allowing relief from sanctions that the country's leaders say have hurt its economy.
