Serial No. 114-59: Advancing United States' Interests at the United Nations, Hearing Before the Committee on Foreign Affairs, House of Representatives, One Hundred Fourteenth Congress, First Session, June 16, 2015   [open pdf - 1MB]

This is the June 16, 2015 hearing on "Advancing United States' Interests at the United Nations," held before the U.S. Senate/House Committee on Foreign Affairs. From the opening statement of Ed Royce: "If a final Iran nuclear agreement is reached, and the deadline is in 2 weeks, then the Security Council will be expected to remove international sanctions while preserving the ability to react to Iranian cheating. And given all we know about the history of Iran's nuclear program, cheating should be expected. The committee wants to know how, in a case of cheating, a proposed sanctions ''snap-back'' process would work. We know for sure that Russia and China wouldn't make this easy. And I have never known any U.N. process described as taking place in a ''snap.'' Last week's revelation by a panel of U.N. experts that there has been not a single report of Iran violating the U.N. arms embargo not only lacks any credibility, but calls into serious question the chances of the U.N. snapping back any sanctions." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Samantha Power.
