Abstract | Full Text

Containment of Iran's nuclear, missile and space programs, Iranian regional movements to fight Takfiri terrorism, U.S. dual interpretation of Terrorism and human rights, increasing AIPAC regime lobbying in U.S. Congress and Iran's support for the region's liberation movements, have prompted U.S. Congressional legislators to take steps towards ratification of comprehensive sanctions against Iran before JCPOA. Improving the economic and livelihoods and Iran phobia defeating through reducing sanctions pressure, was the most important priority of the Islamic Republic of Iran in accepting JCPOA. For this reason, Congressional post-JCPOA sanctions against Iran has focused toward making inefficient of economic, commercial and banking diplomacy, weakening missile power of Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps and Engineering of regional arrangements through the accumulating, intelligent and aggregating of non-nuclear sanctions. The most important innovation of this research is that using descriptive-analytical method and by collecting information through documentary and library studies, in addition to the comparison of the sanctions policies of the congresses in the pre and post-JCPOA, it has suggested ways to counter coercive diplomacy of U.S. congress.
