A New Iran Deal Could Be an Occasion for Bipartisan Unity

The effort to bring bipartisan unity back to our government in Washington received an unexpected boost from an unlikely place last month. Iran’s new foreign minister, Hossein Amir-Abdollahian, said that if talks on restarting the nuclear agreement between Iran and the P5+1 begin (as appears likely later this month), Tehran would demand assurances that “Washington will not renege on the deal again.”

The only way to assure that is for President Biden to submit an agreement with Iran to the Senate as a treaty, needing 67 votes to be ratified. That would require support from members of both political parties. It would bring Washington, for a moment, back to bipartisanship in foreign policy.
