August 31, 2015

Washington, D.C.- Senator Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas) today met with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in Jerusalem during a weeklong trip to Israel. Prime Minister Netanyahu and Senator Cotton discussed the special relationship between the United States and Israel, their opposition to the Iran Nuclear Deal, and the regional implications of the deal.

"I was honored to spend time with Prime Minister Netanyahu today. There is no one better to discuss the impact of a nuclear Iran, both in the Middle East and in the world," said Senator Cotton. "Today's meeting only reaffirms my opposition to this deal. I will stand with Prime Minister Netanyahu and Israel and work with my colleagues in Congress to stop this deal and to ensure that Israel has the means to defend itself against Iran and its terrorist surrogates."
