Tell Mnuchin & Pompeo: No new sanctions on Iran!
Economic sanctions are already hurting the ability of people in Iran to access critical healthcare in the face of COVID-19. Additional sanctions will only exacerbate the humanitarian crisis facing the Iranian people. I urge you to reconsider any new sanctions on Iran and ask again that existing sanctions be suspended for at least 120 days.
Why is this important?
The Trump administration is considering adding more sanctions on Iran. Existing sanctions are already hurting the ability of people in Iran to access critical healthcare in the face of COVID-19. The pandemic has killed more than 27,000 and the country is once again shut down in the face of a new and terrifying COVID wave. These new measures would only exacerbate the humanitarian crisis the Iranian people are currently facing.
Maximum pressure has meant maximum failure. Urge Secretaries Mnuchin and Pompeo: No new sanctions on Iran!
