  • AIC Statement: Sanctions Bill Delayed

    Senator Bob Menendez (D-NJ), who has been leading the drive for new sanctions legislation, told the Senate Banking Committee on Tuesday that he would delay introducing a sanctions bill until after March 24, the deadline for nuclear negotiators to reach a political framework. The Senator told the Committee that he and his colleagues still hoped for a diplomatic solution but were “deeply skeptical” about Iran’s willingness to make the necessary concessions, which the Senator defines as near total surrender.
