Congressional Leadership and
State Condoleezza Rice
Iran continues to defy UN Security Council resolutions to end its nuclear
program. Iran is also a state sponsor of terrorism, stirring unrest in the
Middle East and providing weapons for Hezbollah to use against Israel. Its
president has denied the Holocaust and called for the destruction of Israel.
Congress and the Administration to continue their support of diplomatic and economic
sanctions against Iran. Additionally, we urge you to build consensus in Europe and
the UN to support these sanctions and maintain pressure on Iran until their
leaders pursue a more peaceful agenda.
