Public Testimony
Burns, Nicholas. "The Implications of Sanctions Relief Under the Iran Agreement." Testimony Before the Banking, Housing, & Urban Affairs Committee, U.S. Senate, August 5, 2015.
Mr. Chairman, Ranking Member Brown and members of the committee, thank you for this opportunity to testify on the international agreement to prevent Iran from becoming a nuclear weapons power and the implications for sanctions relief. This is one of the most urgent and important challenges for our country, for our European allies as well as for Israel and our Arab partners in the Middle East. The United States must thwart Iran’s nuclear weapons ambitions and its determination to become the dominant military power in the region.
