AIPAC STATEMENT ON IRAN BALLISTIC MISSILE SANCTIONS

January 19, 2016 

AIPAC appreciates that the U.S. Department of Treasury has taken action to sanction entities and individuals involved in procurement for Iran's illicit ballistic missile program. This is an important first step in response to Iran's two recent missile tests.  

It is imperative to maintain constant vigilance about Iran's compliance with the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action and other international restrictions. Iran has a long record of violations of international obligations. That is why illegal or malign behavior by the Iranian regime must not be tolerated and met with a certain, swift and severe response.
