Two influential U.S. senators have circulated a letter in the senate emphasizing that a lessening of U.S. sanctions should be conditional on the nuclear agreement making tough demands on the Iranian regime.

In letter circulated by Sens. Bob Menendez, D-N.J., and Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., it is demanded that the Iranian regime should accept international inspections lasting for a minimum of two decades and fully disclose military aspects of its nuclear program.

They said the Iranian regime has a “history of deception in its nuclear program,” and they feared long-term U.S. concerns would not be addressed in any agreement. Rather, a deal ending U.S. sanctions may “provide Iran a window for economic recovery where after it could resume its nuclear program,” they said.

Menendez, chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations committee, and Graham, a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, also called for immediate resumption of sanctions if the Iranian regime did not keep its commitments.
