- To assess whether the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) is working and the effectiveness of its implementation.
- To examine Iran’s continued aggression and malign activities throughout the Middle East.
Under the JCPOA, Iran accepted restrictions on its nuclear program in exchange for a broad lifting of US, European Union, and United Nations sanctions.
In January 2016, the International Atomic Energy Agency verified that Iran had completed several requirements and a significant number of sanctions were lifted.
Despite the deal, Iran has continued to engage in aggressive militant behavior, including a January 2017 ballistic missile test in defiance of U.N. Security Council Resolution 2231.
