UANI Applauds Senate Passage of Bipartisan Iran Sanctions Legislation
New York, NY - The leaders of United Against Nuclear Iran (UANI) applaud the U.S. Senate's strong bipartisan vote today to impose new sanctions on those involved in Iran's ballistic missile program and on the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), a terrorist organization responsible for destabilizing many countries in the Middle East.
"UANI commends the Senate for its swift, bipartisan action against the Iranian regime today," said UANI Chairman and former U.S. Senator Joseph I. Lieberman. "Tehran's reckless regional aggression and world-leading sponsorship of terrorism demand a strong, punitive response. The bipartisan nature of today's vote sends a clear and powerful signal to companies around the world that Iran remains a very risky environment for any prudent business to enter."

UANI is an independent, not-for-profit, non-partisan, advocacy group founded in 2008 by Ambassador Mark D. Wallace, Ambassador Richard Holbrooke, former CIA Director Jim Woolsey and Middle East Expert Ambassador Dennis Ross, that seeks to heighten awareness of the danger the Iranian regime poses to the world.
