U.S. Senator Mark Kirk (R-Ill.) today released the following statement regarding Iran's continued non-compliance with U.N. Security Council Resolutions ordering the regime to halt all uranium enrichment activities:
"After three rounds of meetings, Iran remains in violation of multiple U.N. Security Council resolutions ordering it to halt all its uranium enrichment activities. The House and Senate should immediately negotiate a final Iran sanctions bill that can be sent to the President's desk in July. This legislation should include new and tougher sanctions proposals put forward by lawmakers on both sides of the aisle, including sanctions targeting Iran's energy and financial sectors, shipping and insurance."
