Lew Says Iran Nuclear Agreement Doesn’t Weaken Sanctions Regime

U.S. Treasury Secretary Jacob J. Lew said the international agreement designed to limit Iran’s nuclear program “does nothing to undo or weaken the core architecture of our sanctions regime.”

Lew, speaking to the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee in Washington tonight, said “our enforcement of the sanctions regime will be as unflinching as ever -- so any CEO, general counsel, or business person who thinks now might be a time to test our resolve, better think again.”
