Senator: Nuclear deal will allow Iran to ‘industrialize’ its nuclear-enrichment capability
Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) Saturday released a statement lambasting the president’s Iran nuclear agreement and the U.S. lifting sanctions on Iran and its terror-entrenched government with its litany of human-rights violations.
“I opposed this flawed agreement, and fear its implementation shifts the leverage to Iran as sanctions are lifted in exchange for only limited and temporary restrictions, allowing Iran to industrialize its nuclear enrichment capability after a decade,” Corker said …
Corker was co-author of the Iran Nuclear Agreement Review Act that mandated congressional review of the agreement. He and other Republicans voted unsuccessfully last year for a resolution of disapproval that would have blocked the agreement.
“Now armed with an initial windfall of more than $100 billion, Iran will have vast new resources to continue sponsoring terrorism, threatening its neighbors, and funding its nuclear and missile programs. The U.S. and our European partners must impose swift and immediate consequences for any violations or acts of Iranian aggression to ensure Tehran will not use the deal as cover to advance its dangerous activities.”
Our next president must stand up to Iran and be willing to roll back President Obama’s disastrous Iran nuclear deal. Click here to get involved and help us hold our elected officials accountable!
