Sen. Menendez (D-NJ) Introduces S.Res.511
Senator Robert Menendez (D-NJ) introduced S.Res.511 to the Senate on February 10, 2022. It was then referred to the Committee on Foreign Relations. The resolution proposes that establishing a regional nuclear fuel bank would assist international efforts to avoid a destabilizing arms race in the Middle East and would promote the peaceful use of nuclear power. It also posits that the United States should seek bilateral and multilateral nuclear cooperation agreements with Middle Eastern states, including Iran, and that if Iran enters a nuclear agreement, the United States should commit to and provide sanction relief.
