In October 2017, President Trump declared that he would withdraw from the carefully negotiated Iran nuclear deal that had been agreed upon in 2015 by the Obama administration. Since then, the US sanctions previously lifted in the deal have been reimposed, raining immense suffering, not upon the Iranian government, but upon the Iranian people. In the summer of 2019, Iran declared that they would begin to enrich Uranium beyond the level and quantity restrictions set in place by the agreement.
We call for the administration to return to the 2015 Nuclear Deal, lifting sanctions on Iran in the process. Furthermore, we call for both nations to begin to increase diplomatic talks and meetings so as to begin to work past the feud that has plagued both nations for decades and proven to be a barrier for peace.
