Reuters Cites FPI-Led Open Letter to Congress on Iran

In "Senate Majority Support Iran Sanctions Bill Opposed by Obama," Reuters reporters Timothy Gardner and Patricia Zengerle write:

More than half of U.S. senators support a bill to impose new sanctions on Iran should the Islamic Republic break an agreement to curb its nuclear program, aides said on Thursday, but there was no plan yet to debate the measure.

The White House has threatened to veto the legislation, and Iran says last November's nuclear deal struck in Geneva would be dead if the U.S. Congress imposes new sanctions.


A group of 72 conservative foreign policy experts, including Elliot Abrams, an aide to former President George W. Bush, and former Senator Joe Lieberman, wrote a letter to congressional leaders on Thursday urging them to act to halt Iran's nuclear program.

The text of the FPI-led letter to Congress on Iran, along with the full list of signatories, is available here.
