S. Hrg. 106-880: Testimony addresses the key question of whether WMD proliferation in Iran has ended, and provides evidence that transfers of WMD and advanced conventional weapons from Russia to Iran continue unabated. Statements indicate that the US efforts to terminate Russia's nuclear coopration with Iran are insufficient, and highlight the Iranian government's anti-Western policies, support for international terrorist organizations, and efforts to develop and deploy weapons. The main points are: Russia's role in Iran's weapons program, the role that it likely is to play in the foreseeable future, and what the United States can do to more effectively curb this lethal partnership. Statements, letters, and material submitted for the record include those of the following: American Jewish Committee's, June 2000 report entitled "Iran and Weapons of Mass Destruction", Sam Brownback, Robert J. Einhorn, John A. Lauder, and Gordon H. Smith.
