WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) issued the following statement regarding the nuclear agreement with Iran announced today:
“Given the grave consequences of a weak nuclear agreement with Iran, I share Americans’ skepticism about this deal which is offered by the same president who called ISIS the ‘JV team,’ and has mismanaged American foreign policy across the Middle East.
“I will carefully examine the terms of this proposal and press the Obama administration to prove this deal effectively secures our safety, verifies accountability from Iran, and increases stability in the Middle East. My initial reaction is this agreement has conceded too much and has not sufficiently reduced Iran’s nuclear capabilities. I am also disappointed the administration neglected to include the release of Americans held captive in Iran in this agreement, including Pastor Saeed Abedini and former U.S. Marine Amir Hekmati who have both been held for several years.”
