US House Urged to Appoint Sanctions Advisor

A US congresswoman called on Republican House Speaker Paul Ryan to establish a special advisor on Iran to help ensure the President Barack Obama administration is imposing all required sanctions against Tehran.
Representative Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, the former chairwoman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, said the senior advisor for sanctions policy and Iran coordinator would help strengthen Congress’ oversight of Iran, and ensure “greater enforcement of sanctions” imposed against Iranians and Iranian entities, Washington Examiner reported on Saturday.
“The individual would serve as the congressional equivalent to Ambassador Stephen Mull, whom the Obama administration named to serve as coordinator for the US implementation of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action on Iran nuclear program at the Department of State,” Ros-Lehtinen wrote to Ryan in December.
She also suggested that Ryan pick her former staffer director, Dr. Yleem Poblete, serve as the congressional advisor.
