For the United States of America it seems very difficult to to discuss the Americans being held hostage by Iran at the bargaining table, interfering with the ongoing negotiations for the nuclear deal.
It is not opportune for the States to discuss American Pastor Saeed Abedini and the other U.S. citizens wrongly imprisoned in Iran.
Some senators are proposing amendments to pressure Iran
to end its support of terrorist groups, stop threatening to destroy
Israel and recognize its right to exist, and release U.S. citizens held
Other amendments would prevent sanctions relief if Iran
cooperates with nuclear-armed North Korea, or until international
nuclear inspectors are guaranteed access to Iranian military sites. . . .
third set of amendments would prevent sanctions relief until they meet
goals the U.S. established at the beginning of the negotiations.
Pastor Saeed has to face demands that he become Muslim or face an extended prison sentence.
