Ros-Lehtinen Commends Administration’s Decision to Withdraw from Iran Nuclear Deal

“The President made the right decision to withdraw from the JCPOA and to begin the process to re-impose sanctions on the regime”

Washington, DC – Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, Chairman of the Subcommittee on the Middle East and North Africa, made the following statement regarding President Trump’s intent to withdraw from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA). Statement by Ros-Lehtinen:

“The President was clear that it was his priority to fix the JCPOA and made an effort to work with our European partners to close the loopholes and strengthen the accord. Unfortunately, it appears that our allies were unwilling to take the steps necessary to hold Iran accountable for its support for terror, its ballistic missile program, its abysmal human rights record, or to prevent Iran from ever acquiring nuclear weapons.

The President made the right decision to withdraw from the JCPOA and to begin the process to re-impose sanctions on the regime. Today marks the beginning of a new way forward on Iran and I’m confident that we will be able to build a coalition together to prevent a nuclear Iran.”
