The success of U.S.-Iran negotiating efforts demonstrates that when our nations commit to serious diplomacy, historic progress is possible (“Analysis: A Closer Look At The P5+
1-Iranian Agreement,” Nov. 29). The United States and Iran are in reach of a deal to guard against a nuclear-armed Iran and a devastating war. Congress should not sabotage this diplomatic victory with new sanctions and saber rattling measures that would jeopardize the progress our diplomats have worked so hard to achieve. I hope Sen. Ben Cardin and Sen. Barbara Mikulski vote against new sanctions, and will publicly support these efforts toward a diplomatic resolution of the decade-long standoff over Iran’s nuclear program.
