Washington, D.C. - Following news reports that Iran intends to pull out of certain aspects of the 2015 Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), Senator Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas) released the following statement:

"Europe must not give in to Tehran's nuclear blackmail as the ayatollahs threaten to renew their rush toward the bomb. The United Kingdom, Germany, and France ought to walk away from their financial backchannels with Iran and join the United States in imposing maximum pressure on the regime. The United States will remain steadfast in its approach until Iran abandons its nuclear and missile programs and support for terrorism."
