NJDC congratulates President Obama and Secretary Kerry on the success of the P5+1 sanctions in bringing Iran to the negotiating table. We firmly believe that a diplomatic agreement to eliminate Iran’s nuclear weapon capability is preferable to military engagement.
The President should have every tool available to ensure the success of the interim agreement. Additional sanctions, such as those proposed by the Menendez-Kirk Bill, are a welcome option for the Administration should they be necessary. We encourage Congress to support the President’s foreign policy initiative by making stronger measures available should they be required. Final action on the legislation should be dependent upon Iran’s full compliance with its obligations.
