Cotton Statement on Snapback Sanctions Against Iran

 

Washington, D.C. — Senator Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas) released the following statement after Secretary of State Mike Pompeo notified the United Nations that the United States will seek the reinstatement of all U.N. sanctions on Iran:

 

“The Iranian regime was never serious about giving up its nuclear-weapons program, just as it was never serious about giving up terrorist bombings and rocket attacks across the Middle East. Iran used Barack Obama and Joe Biden’s disastrous nuclear deal as a ploy to enrich itself and stall for time. I commend President Trump for seeing through this charade and moving to end the last remnants of the deal.”
