The renewed sanctions would be imposed should Iran fail to abide by the commitments it has made under the Interim Agreement, or “plan or conduct a terrorist attack against the U.S. or launch a long-range ballistic missile during negotiations.”
Beginning January 20th, the administration will give the world’s leading state sponsor of terrorism billions of dollars while allowing the mullahs to keep their illicit nuclear infrastructure in place. I am worried the administration’s policies will either lead to Iranian nuclear weapons or Israeli air strikes. It’s time for the United States Senate to pass common-sense bipartisan legislation, now cosponsored by 59 senators, to ensure this process leads to the peaceful dismantlement of Iran’s nuclear program.
The bill would also allow Congress to reject any final agreement between the P5+1 and Iran if the agreement does not specifically bar Iran from having the ability to produce nuclear weapons in the future.
Note: P5+1 P5 refers to the five permanent members of the UN Security Council, the United States, the United Kingdom, France, Russia and China. +1 means plus Germany.Lori Lowenthal Marcus
