Tell Your Senators Not to Undermine Iran Negotiations with New Sanctions

Take action now.

The U.S. Senate is considering numerous legislative initiatives that would expand and tighten existing sanctions against Iran during a critical period of negotiations.

Administration officials believe they have made significant progress towards an interim agreement with Iran, which would address immediate proliferation concerns by freezing Iran’s nuclear progress in exchange for limited relief of sanctions, while negotiations on a comprehensive final agreement would take place. As a result, officials have asked key Senators to temporarily hold off on implementing new sanctions while talks with Iran are in progress.

President Obama as well as many policy experts have warned that further sanctions on Iran at this time could undermine U.S. credibility, splinter the international coalition cooperating on sanctions, and drive Tehran from the negotiating table.

A 2013 National Public Opinion Survey of Iranian Americans by PAAIA shows that a solid majority of Iranian Americans support President Obama’s handling of Iran’s nuclear program and more than two-thirds would support the removal of sanctions if the Iranian regime reached an agreement with the U.S. and the international community concerning its nuclear program.

Given the current state of ongoing negotiations between Iran and the P5+1, now is the time to put diplomacy to the test and not potentially damage the diplomatic process.

Contact your Senators today and tell them not to undermine negotiations with Iran by passing new sanctions.
