US efforts to broaden sanctions on Iran won’t work

“The United States is at a crossroads with Iran as diplomatic talks to revive the nuclear deal stall. President Joe Biden stated recently that the administration is looking at ‘other options’ beyond diplomacy with Iran, even as he promised ‘relentless diplomacy’ in his first address to the United Nations. Amidst a report the Biden administration is reaching out to China to cut its imports of Iranian oil, it appears the United States is prematurely abandoning the diplomacy-first approach. But a return to sanctions wouldn’t serve U.S. interests.” (10/06/21)
