The American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) is asking its thousands of activists to lobby members of Congress to co-sign a letter to the President outlining what a final deal with Iran must include, instead of asking for a vote on the new Iran sanctions bill.
“Should an acceptable final agreement be reached, your administration will need to work together with Congress to enact implementing legislation to provide longer term sanctions relief beyond existing waiver authorities – either through suspension, repeal or amendment of statutory sanctions,” the letter reads.
The letter is signed by Senate Foreign Relations Committee chairman Robert Menendez (D-New Jersey), as well as Senators Chuck Schumer (D-New York), Christopher Coons (D-Delaware), Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina), Mark Kirk (R-Illinois) and Kelly Ayotte (R-New Hampshire).
“We believe that Iran has no inherent right to enrichment under the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty,” the letter further reads. “We believe any agreement must dismantle Iran’s nuclear weapons program and prevent it from ever having a uranium or plutonium path to a nuclear bomb.”
