From Richard C. Shelby's opening statement: "One of this country's most pressing and potentially dangerous foreign policy challenges involves Iran's development of nuclear weapons and their means of delivery. A nuclear-capable Iran would fundamentally alter the situation in the Middle East. Furthermore, Iran's support for some of the most dangerous terrorist organizations in the world and its exploitation of those organizations to undermine efforts at peace and stability in the Middle East make it imperative that we continue to examine the role of economic sanctions in limiting the scope of its conduct." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Paul Sarbanes, Wayne Allard, Jack Reed, Chuck Hagel, Robert Menendez, Charles E. Schumer, Nicholas Burns, Patrick O'brien, Thomas Carper, Rick Santorum, and Richard C. Shelby.
