Bush administration officials yesterday told lawmakers that U.S. sanctions against Iran, North Korea and other countries with ties to weapons of mass destruction and terrorism have had significant results.
Senior Treasury and State department officials told a joint subcommittee hearing that the administration's sanctions have been a useful tool in efforts to get these regimes to change their behavior, although House lawmakers criticized the administration's approach.
The United States has instituted a number of economic actions to help stop the spread of weapons of mass destruction since the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, Treasury Department officials said.
