Sanctions on Iran: Nuclear program in focus

-

The chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee announced on Wednesday that both Republican and Democratic U.S. lawmakers will press ahead with a plan for more sanctions on Iran, despite White House warnings that they risked disrupting nuclear talks. Their plan is to reintroduce legislation with a stand on Iran’s nuclear program, one that would be much stricter than before and would have the country under close enquiry.

the chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee announced on Wednesday that both Republican and Democratic U.S. lawmakers will press ahead with a plan for more sanctions on Iran, despite White House warnings that they risked disrupting nuclear talks. Their plan is to reintroduce legislation with a stand on Iran’s nuclear program, one that would be much stricter than before and would have the country under close enquiry.

Reuters reports that lawmakers that might feel that the Obama administration negotiators might not take strict action, are actually working on a separate bill to have Congress approve any final agreement on Iran’s nuclear program. The Tennessee Republican senator in response to this new legislation change quoted that “There’s continual efforts to try to figure out a way for Congress to play a role to strengthen whatever final deal may occur”, ensuring that the US are doing everything in their power to restrict Iran’s power on nuclear assets.

 The US Department of State, clearly states that in response to Iran’s continued illicit nuclear activities, the United States and other countries have imposed unprecedented sanctions to censure Iran and prevent its further progress in prohibited nuclear activities, as well as to persuade Tehran regime to address the international community’s concerns about its nuclear program. For them, these measures are designed to block the transfer of weapons, components and technology to Iran’s prohibited nuclear and missile programs. Because of these sanctions, the US can target select sectors of the Iranian economy relevant to its proliferation activities; and can induce Iran to engage constructively, through discussions with the United States, China, France and other countries.

Republican Senator Mark Kirk and Democratic Senator Robert Menendez are finalizing a bill for tougher sanctions on Iran if there is no final nuclear deal by June 30, where they had already introduced a sanctions bill in December 2013, but it did not come up for a vote in the Senate, then controlled by President Obama’s fellow Democrats, who lost control of the chamber because of big losses in November elections.
