Amid rapidly escalating tensions and provocative actions between the U.S., Iran, and partners in the region, the ACNSL concludes the best and only path forward to securing stability is through diplomacy. While the U.S. must quickly move to prevent Iran from developing nuclear weapons through an aggressive and well-coordinated diplomatic campaign, we must also simultaneously work with the international community to condemn and counter Iranian efforts to destabilize the region. Previous Iranian aggravations in the gulf including the seizing of allied oil tankers, the continued armament of Hezbollah and other terrorist groups, and coordinated attacks against Saudi oil fields demonstrate the ineffectiveness of the administration’s “maximum pressure” campaign to resolve Iranian activities against U.S. interests.
