Sens. King and Levin pen New York Times Op-Ed on Iran sanctions

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- U.S. Senators Angus King (I-ME) and Carl M. Levin (D-MI) penned a New York Times op-ed, "Don’t Undermine the Iran Deal," published yesterday, Jan. 27, 2014, urging their colleagues not to seek further sanctions on Iran while negotiations proceed to ensure the country can’t develop nuclear weapons.

"For us to impose additional sanctions under these circumstances (or threaten in law to impose additional sanctions) could be an 'I told you so' moment for [Iranian government and military] hard-liners, providing the very excuse they’re looking for to kill the negotiations and, with them, what is probably the best chance we have of resolving this incredibly dangerous situation without resorting to military action," write Senators King and Levin.
