What a historic opportunity for our members of Congress to take effective action for peace [“Give peace a chance in Iran,” Opinion, Nov. 27].

By supporting a diplomatic resolution to the standoff over Iran’s nuclear program and by opposing new sanctions, which could sabotage the diplomatic triumphs our country and Iran have achieved so far, we could move closer to peace in the deeply troubled Middle East.

— Ruth M. Yarrow, Seattle
