Senator Mark Kirk on US-Iran Nuclear Negotiations

Sen. Mark Kirk on US-Iran Nuclear Negotiations

As the Obama Administration continues negotiations with Iran over its nuclear program, members of Congress have expressed concern over key issues in the negotiations.  A recent compromise between the White House and US lawmakers, if enacted into law, would give Congress 30 days to review a final nuclear deal with Tehran.  Will Congress ultimately approve or block a nuclear deal with Iran? What does the Senate’s recent 100-to-0 vote on the bipartisan Kirk-Brown amendment, which calls for Iran to face immediate sanctions in the event of non-compliance on any nuclear agreement, suggest about the faith of Congress in the long-term viability of an Iran deal?  Join the Chicago Council on Global Affairs and Senator Mark Kirk (R, IL) for an overview of his perspectives on the US-Iran nuclear negotiations.
