Testimony of Stephen Mull, Lead Coordinator for Iran Nuclear Implementation, before the House Committee on Foreign Affairs

Iran Nuclear Deal Oversight: Implementation and its Consequences
May 25, 2016

The finalization of the JCPOA in July 2015 was the culmination of a years-long process of tough and clear-eyed diplomacy. It also marked the beginning of a new process which will require similar vigilance and focus, the goal of which is to ensure the JCPOA is fully and effectively implemented and therefore that Iran is not able to obtain a nuclear weapon. I know that is a goal that we all share equally and I appreciate your continued interest in learning about our efforts.

I am happy to report today that, so far, the JCPOA has been implemented by all participants. It is important that we recognize what an accomplishment that is towards advancing our national security, and that of our allies and partners, particularly those in the Middle East. Because of our efforts to date, the security of the United States and our partners has been immeasurably enhanced and in conversations with allies and partners around the world, we regularly hear support for the JCPOA.
