UANI Calls on President Obama and Governor Romney to Commit to Not Use the "Easing of Sanctions" as a Bargaining Chip in any Negotiations with Iran
UANI Calls for Bi-Partisan Support for Full Economic Blockade
New York, NY - Today, United Against Nuclear Iran (UANI) called on President Obama and Governor Romney, in their final debate tonight, to commit to not entertaining the "easing of sanctions" until Iran fully and verifiably ends its nuclear program. UANI calls for bipartisan support for increased economic pressure and a full economic blockade on Iran.
Said UANI CEO, Ambassador Mark D. Wallace:
In their final debate, President Obama and Governor Mitt Romney should make clear to the Iranian regime that the American people are united in opposing Iran's nuclear program and supporting strong economic measures against the regime. We ask the candidates to commit to:
1. Not using the "easing of sanctions" as a bargaining chip in any negotiations, but instead to only lift sanctions when Iran has fully and verifiably ended its nuclear program;
2. Support the most robust sanctions in history against Iran, based on an economic blockade that would force companies and countries to choose between doing business with the U.S. and its allies or doing business with Iran. The only exception to this blockade should be for legitimate humanitarian aid.
The cumulative effect of existing economic sanctions, which are not yet fully developed in scope or strength, has been Iranian hyperinflation. No serious policy should ease sanctions unless or until the Iranian regime agrees to fully and verifiably end its nuclear program.
On multiple occasions, the Iranian regime has used the promise of negotiations to buy time in order to further develop its nuclear program and avoid economic pressure. Now, Iran is using this same tactic to buy time during the U.S. presidential election and inauguration period. U.S. policymakers must not succumb to this tactic.
Our leaders must make clear to the Iranian regime that the U.S. and its allies will increase economic pressure, to make Iran's hyperinflation durable, and lead to the ultimate demise of the rial. Such an outcome is achievable through an economic blockade on Iran. Countries and companies worldwide must be forced to choose between doing business with the U.S. and its allies or doing business with Iran.
