Robert Hurt statement on Iran nuclear agreement

Robert_HurtCongressman Robert Hurt (R-Virginia) released the following statement after the Obama Administration, and the nations of China, France, Germany, Russia, and the United Kingdom, reached an agreement with Iran relating to its nuclear program.

“I am very concerned by the announcement that we have made a deal with Iran given their nuclear ambitions and history of hostility toward the U.S. and our allies.  I remain skeptical that Iran will act in good faith and adhere to any of the terms of a deal.  Iran has been unwilling to make necessary compromises to meaningfully limit their nuclear program, and there is little reason to believe this will change now.  Making a deal just for the sake of doing so is not worth putting the safety and security of our allies and our country at risk.

“Pursuant to the Iran Nuclear Agreement Review Act, Congress will now have 60 days to review the agreement and can pass a joint resolution to approve or disapprove of the deal.  I will review the terms of the agreement closely, and it is my hope that Congress will carefully consider the consequences of a deal with Iran and maintain its focus on the ultimate goal of eliminating the threat of a nuclear Iran.  I remain committed to working with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to enhance the necessary sanctions against the Iranian regime.  We must do everything within our power to prevent Iran from gaining nuclear capabilities.”
