The President’s much-anticipated announcement does not mean that the United States is withdrawing from the JCPOA, nor does it automatically result in the re-imposition of any U.S. sanctions against Iran. Rather, the President’s announcement gives the U.S. Congress 60 days to introduce legislation to re-impose U.S. sanctions that could be considered under expedited procedures.
