Iran: Support a Permanent Deal!
June 23, 2014 @ 10:00 am - June 24, 2014 @ 5:00 pm
Iran claims its nuclear program is purely for peaceful purposes. But despite intelligence reports to the contrary, the U.S. still suspects Iran of having covert plans to build a nuclear weapon in the future, and has applied heavy sanctions on Iran’s economy.
The U.S. and Iran signed an interim nuclear agreement in November, and negotiations are progressing well toward a permanent deal. But when an agreement is reached, Congress will have to approve lifting of sanctions – so we will need peace leaders in Congress who will advocate for lifting them.
- NOT try to legislate the exact terms of the permanent agreement, which would jeopardize negotiations
- SUPPORT robust diplomacy
- PREPARE to lift sanctions as part of a final deal
