“There is no doubt the agreement reached between the P5+1 and the Islamic Republic of Iran will be hotly debated by the U.S. Congress, presidential contenders and an array of policy experts. Many dimensions will inform viewpoints: nuclear proliferation, regional strife and its shifting proxy considerations principal among them.
“The NFTC and USA*Engage have supported the negotiations because we support engagement as the best solution to complex international problems and the one which will most likely take business interests into account. The commercial dimensions of Iran’s re-entry into the global economy, if sanctions are lifted pursuant to the agreement, are not trivial.
“In this regard, the NFTC and USA*Engage continue to advocate for parity in the treatment of U.S. companies and their European and Asian competitors. As the agreement is implemented, the commercial interests of U.S. companies will clearly be part of the U.S. national interest.”
