Senators Urge Increased Iran Sanctions, With or Without UN Support

Senators from both sides of the aisle have sent a letter to President Obama urging him to increase the pressure on Iran to slow down its nuclear program. The group of Senators, headlined by Chuck Schumer and John McCain, recommend that the President pursue “parallel and complementary measures, outside the Security Council, to increase the pressure on the Iranian government” should the United Nations fail to support such efforts. The letter also references the possibility of a military strike, noting that while the authors “abhor the possibility that military action may be necessary to solve this problem,” they “have no doubt that a nuclear-armed Iran will be catastrophic for [U.S.] national security and the rule-based international order.”
