The New York Times reported that a bipartisan group of five senators sent a letter to President Barack Obama praising his leadership on Iran. The senators stated that they “strongly support the cascade of measures that have been put in place over the past several months by your Administration, in cooperation with our partners around the world, to increase the pressure on the government of the Islamic Republic of Iran. We applaud and are encouraged by the strong actions taken thus far by the Administration to secure meaningful economic and diplomatic sanctions against the Iranian regime, which are absolutely essential for any prospect of a peaceful resolution to this challenge.”
Senators Jon Kyl (R-AZ), Mark Kirk (R-IL), Robert Casey Jr. (D-PA), Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) and Joseph Lieberman (I-CT) signed the letter.
