Unclassified Annex - Iranian Influence in Latin America and the Caribbean   [open pdf - 658KB]

From the text: "Assumptions: 1. Iranian interest in Latin America is of concern. Iran has serially failed to live up to its international obligations and is a State Sponsor of Terrorism. 2. Since 2005, Iran has increased its outreach to the region working to strengthen its political, economic, cultural, and military ties. 3. As a result of diplomatic outreach, strengthening of allies' capacity, international nonproliferation efforts, a strong sanctions policy, and Iran's poor management of its foreign relations, Iranian influence in Latin America and the Caribbean is waning. 4. Current U.S., EU, and UN Security Council sanction regimes have limited the economic relationship between the Western Hemisphere and Iran."
