UANI Statement: Temporary Waivers for Countries with Civilian Nuclear Projects in Iran

(New York, N.Y.) – United Against Nuclear Iran (UANI) Chairman Senator Joseph I. Lieberman and CEO Ambassador Mark D. Wallace released the following statement regarding the renewal of temporary waivers for countries operating civilian nuclear projects in Iran:

“The civil nuclear cooperation waivers under the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) provide Iran with a pathway to build a nuclear weapon. As such, this should be the last extension to permit countries operating in Iran the opportunity to wind down their work. Maximum pressure continues to be the most promising avenue for convincing the Iranian regime to change its malign behavior. We believe that maximum pressure must ultimately mean just that—no exceptions, and no exemptions.”
