Iran's parliament approved the country's nuclear deal with world powers Tuesday, paving the way for the historic agreement curbing Tehran's atomic program to take effect and for sanctions to end.A tally of votes to pass the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, the nuclear deal's official name, said 250 of Iran's 290 lawmakers were present and 17 of those in the chamber did not vote.The nuclear deal between Iran and the so-called P5+1 group (Britain, China, France, Russia and the United States plus Germany) came after almost two years of diplomacy.Only lawmakers in the United States and Iran, sworn enemies since the Islamic Revolution in 1979, had insisted on voting on it.Iranian officials have said sanctions should be lifted by the end of the year or January 2016 at the latest.
