US Secretary of State John Kerry made clear at a meeting of  Group of Seven foreign ministers that he is optimistic that an Iran deal will get through the US Congress, Germany’s Foreign Minister said on Wednesday.

“The view is that if you reach an agreement on the basis of the framework, then that is a position that you can push through Congress,” Frank-Walter Steinmeier told reporters.

US President Barack Obama agreed on Tuesday that Congress should have the power to review any deal with Iran, bowing to pressure from Republicans and some in his own Democratic party.
