U.S. Strategy for Iran Released
To take action confidently, but carefully
Senior Director for the Middle East Victoria Coates released a statement this week outlining the United States' strategy for Iran. The main objective of President Donald Trump's strategy in Iran is to bring about systemic change with regards to the Islamic Republic's hostile actions. The President is currently examining whether to impose new sanctions onto Iran, in order to place stress on the country to change.
In addition, the U.S. is looking into the release of Americans and other Western citizens currently being detained in Iran. They are also looking into encouraging warmer ties between Iran and other Gulf countries surrounding it while ensuring that they do not acquire nuclear weapons capabilities. The U.S. will be taking clear steps toward achieving their goals with Iran, but will also continue to look to the President for guidance as the year progresses.
