2015 Agreement Iran

The final agreement is based on (and supporting) “the rules-based non-proliferation regime established by the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT), including, in particular, the IAEA protection system.” [62] The United Against Nuclear Iran (UANI) group rejected the agreement and committed to spend more than $20 million on a “national television, radio, print and digital campaign” against the agreement. [207] [220] After UANI announced its opposition, the group`s president and co-founder, non-proliferation expert Gary Samore, announced that he had concluded “in the interest of the United States” and supported the agreement.
