Statement by Senator Kirk on P5+1 Talks with Iran


Location: Washington, DC

U.S. Senator Mark Kirk (R-Ill.) today released the following statement regarding reports that the United States and its partners offered sanctions relief to Iran in exchange for softened demands:

"History shows that appeasement is expensive and highly unlikely to succeed with evil regimes like Iran. We have seen this movie before, in North Korea with the same negotiating team -- and we saw the results in North Korea's most recent nuclear test.
"No sanctions relief should be provided to Iran until the regime complies with its international obligations.

"Allowing Iran to resume trade in gold would drive a significant hole through our financial sanctions and undermine our efforts to prevent Iran from acquiring a nuclear weapons capability. Instead, we should seek new ways to increase the economic pressure on Iran like cutting off Iranian access to the euro."
