A measure aimed at derailing the Iran nuclear bill has been blocked in the United States senate. Republican law makers have been hoping to pass resolution condemning the agreement which they argue doesnt do enough to curtail Irans nuclear ambitions. Barbara Plett Usher reports from Washington. “Heated debate over the Iran deal has consumed Washington for two months. Giving ferocious Republican opposition, a resolution against the agreement easily has the number to pass. But in recent days, president Obama has secured the support of enough Democratic senators to block a vote and thats what theyve done. Republican still have one more week to pass the resolution and make it try. But the legislation aimed at killing the deal is essentially dead. Mr. Obama welcomed the outcome as a victory for the diplomacy, national security and security of the world.”

美国参议院否决了一项试图阻挠伊朗核协议的提案。共和党立法人想借该提案阻止核协议,因为协议不足以约束伊朗的核野心。巴巴拉•普莱特•阿瑟从华盛顿报道。“近两月来围绕伊朗核协议的激烈争论令华盛顿上下疲于应付。鉴于共和党的众多反对之声,提案本可以轻易获得通过票数。然而近期奥马巴总统取得足够的民主党参议员支持以阻止投票,他们成功了。共和党还剩一周的时间为通过提案做最后努力。不过通过法律扼杀核协议已无希望。奥巴马称这样的结果是外交、国家以及世界安全的胜利。”
