In January of 2014, an interim deal was signed between the P5+1 nations and Iran. The results of the P5+1 talks have thus far failed to find a solution to the Iranian nuclear threat, and negotiations have been extended twice, with the next deadline at the end of this month. The repeated extensions have enabled the Iranian Regime to receive billions in sanctions relief, and continue building its nuclear program, including its weakest parts – bomb technology and the ballistic missiles. Iran can still produce enough nuclear material to fuel a bomb in as little as two months, reports show. In addition to the frequent Iranian threats issued against the U.S., the Iranians are currently working on long-range ballistic missile systems that would only be necessary against Europe and the United States.
We are honored to hear from Ambassador John Bolton on the implications the Iranian nuclear negotiations have on U.S. national security and the security of our allies in the Middle East, as Iran continues to build its nuclear arsenal and act aggressively in the region.
