The Iran deal was signed one year ago today! This was a monumental victory for the nonproliferation movement. It’s proof that diplomacy works in stopping the spread of nuclear weapons. One year later, the deal is working: Iran has complied with all commitments under the agreement, thereby blocking all pathways to develop a nuclear weapon.
This deal didn’t just happen out of thin air, either -- it took years of tough negotiating, hard-fought diplomacy and dedicated activism across the world to make it happen. And its success illustrates that with a potent mix of international leadership, diplomacy and relentless public pressure, we can prevent the spread of these devastating weapons of mass destruction, and work to reduce the global stockpile.
A big thank you to everyone around the world who took action to secure the Iran deal. On to more victories!
