Rouhani Vows to Shed Iran Sanctions as Trump Piles on More

Suzanne DiMaggio was quoted in Bloomberg on the Trump Administration's policy on Iran sanctions:

A day after winning re-election last month, Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani reaffirmed a campaign pledge: that he’ll find a way to free his country from sanctions that hobble its economy.
That’s a vow President Donald Trump and U.S. lawmakers are making harder than ever to keep.
“Rouhani’s campaign pledge to remove non-nuclear sanctions underscored the priority his government was prepared to place on growing Iran’s economy,” said Suzanne DiMaggio, senior fellow at the New America Foundation, a research center based in New York. “Despite the obstacles, it also was a signal of interest in improved relations with the U.S.”
