Back Diplomacy with Pressure

After a year of negotiations, and generous offers by the P5+1, Iran has not demonstrated a willingness to give up the capability to develop nuclear weapons. Tough pressure brought Iran to negotiations and additional pressure will strengthen America’s bargaining position. It is now essential that Congress take up new bipartisan sanctions legislation to let Tehran know that it will face much more severe pressure if it does not clearly give up the option of developing nuclear weapons. Urge your members of Congress to support diplomacy backed by tough sanctions.
