Against the advice of his top advisors and key U.S. allies, President Donald Trump announced October 13 that he would not certify to Congress that the sanctions relief granted to Iran is not proportional to the nuclear limits that Iran is meeting under the terms of the deal with six world powers.
Trump also threatened to terminate U.S. participation in the deal if Congress cannot pass new legislation requiring that sanctions to snap back into place if Iran does not meet additional limits not in the deal.
Senators Tom Cotton and Bob Corker have vowed to pursue such legislation, which amounts would put the U.S. on a path to violate the deal.
This unilateralist approach undermines U.S. credibility and leadership in international negotiations. The International Atomic Energy Agency, our European partners, numerous other world leaders, and the U.S. intelligence community all agree that Iran is complying with the Deal's nuclear restrictions.
Please write now and remind Congress that:
Thank you for taking action today and sharing it with others!
