1. Preventing a Nuclear Iran a Top National Security Objective

    The list of United States sanctions against Iran, intended to pressure the country into abandoning its nuclear program, continues to grow. From law firm King & Spalding:

    “[T] he United States and its allies have increasingly turned to economic sanctions as a tool to further isolate the Iranian regime by seeking to deprive it of the benefits of international commerce. To this end, over the past three years a series of new laws have continued to expand already restrictive U.S. sanctions programs by, among other things, expanding the extraterritorial reach of U.S. law. In particular, these new sanctions have a direct impact on the energy and petrochemical industries, and on U.S. businesses with foreign subsidiaries.”
