The President also worked with Congress to pass the Comprehensive Iran Sanctions and Divestment Act, and signed additional sanctions hitting Iran’s central bank and oil revenues, targeting Iran’s entire financial system for the first time.
Iran must never have a nuclear weapon. A nuclear Iran would pose an immediate and existential threat to the state of Israel. It would pose a similar threat to U.S. military installations in the Middle East. It would trigger a dangerous arms race in an already unstable region. And as Iranian weapons technology improved, a nuclear Iran could threaten the security of Europe and even the United States. We cannot and will not allow a terrorist state to hold the world hostage with nuclear weapons.
As Senator, Joe Kyrillos will insist that we make clear to Iran’s leaders that a military option to deal with their nuclear program remains on the table. And Joe is prepared to vote to authorize such action if the need arises.
In the short term, Joe will push for a fifth round of tougher sanctions to bring Iran to the negotiating table; increased enforcement of existing restrictions on trade with Iran; and further diplomatic isolation, until this state-sponsor of terror gives up its nuclear ambitions.
