This collection consists of records concerning United States relations with Iran in 1993 and in 1995 through 1996. Due to serious differences over human rights and support for terrorist organizations, already strained relations between the U.S. and Iran remained poor throughout the 1990s. In 1993, President Clinton announced a strategy of the dual containment of Iraq and Iran. During the mid-1990s, the Administration pursued sanctions against Iran through Executive Order and the Iran-Libya Sanctions Act. The records in this collection include memoranda, reports, briefings, correspondence, and press materials concerning Iran policy.
