Marshall Applauds Snapback of Sanctions on Iran
WASHINGTON – Yesterday, U.S. Congressman Roger Marshall, M.D., sent a letter to President Donald J. Trump supporting the president’s recent decision to initiate a snapback of all pre-Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) sanctions on the Islamic Republic of Iran.
“The Iranian regime is in clear violation of its nuclear commitments under the JCPOA, and snapback is necessary to defend the U.S. and our allies from a nuclear armed regime that will no doubt continue to terrorize the region and the world,” wrote Rep. Marshall. “The maximum pressure campaign implemented by your administration will force Iran to abandon its goal of nuclear armageddon and bring us closer to a lasting peace for Americans, Israelis, and the Iranian people, who continue to suffer each day at the hands of this brutal regime.
Congressman Marshall also praised the Trump Administration’s negotiation of a peace deal between Israel and the United Arab Emirates (UAE). The deal will bring the normalization of relations between Israel and the UAE, making the UAE only the third Arab country, after Egypt and Jordan, and the first of the Gulf states, to sign a peace deal with Israel.
“The agreement marks a critical moment in history and opens the door for other nations to advance peace and counter Iran’s malign influence,” wrote Rep. Marshall. “I am certain that under your and Secretary Pompeo’s leadership more deals will be made that strengthen America and her allies.”
