In 2018, The Trump Administration left the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), better known as the Iran nuclear deal, because it enabled the rogue regime’s support of terrorism, failed to address its ballistic missile program, and paved the way for Iran to have nuclear weapons in the near future.
Despite Iran’s repeated violations of its commitments under the agreement, the other parties have resisted triggering provisions in U.N. Security Council Resolution (UNSCR) 2231 to restore sanctions on Iran. Under the timeline set forth in UNSCR 2231, the U.N. arms embargo on Iran is set to expire this October. Please join us as Special Representative Brian Hook explains the dire urgency of this matter and how the U.S. can use its authority under UNSCR 2231 to trigger “snapback” sanctions and ensure that international pressure on Iran continues.
