  • State of the Union: Iran

    President Barack Obama delivered his annual State of the Union address Tuesday night in which he both supported the ongoing nuclear negotiations as well as issued a veiled military threat to Iran. 

    "There’re no guarantees that negotiations will succeed, and I keep all options on the table to prevent a nuclear Iran," he said.
    The American Iranian Council appreciates Obama’s support for the diplomatic process, but takes issue with his veiled military threat. For the negotiations to succeed, they must be conducted in good faith and in a climate of trust-building, not coercive diplomacy.
