Next Steps in Iran Sanctions: Targeting the Choke Points

This video is no longer available online.

In the past Iran has used its oil wealth to fund its nuclear weapons program. However, the Islamic Republic’s dependence on foreign investment and technology needed to shore up declining energy production, has weakened the regime’s economic base. The latest rounds of U.N. sanctions as well as unilateral sanctions by the European Union and Japan show that the international community is willing to take action against the nuclear threat. To increase pressure on Tehran, the U.S. must also enforce its own sanctions and lead international efforts to target Iran’s choke points. Join Heritage’s distinguished panel of experts as they discuss the options available to the United States in preventing Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons.
