Washington, D.C. - Senator Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas) today released the following statement on reports that the Obama administration supported imports of uranium into Iran:

"The Iran deal keeps getting worse. Last year, the Obama administration paid $8.6 million to Iran for nuclear material that Iran was never allowed to produce. And now it's given its blessing as Iran imports enough uranium for 10 nuclear bombs. It's a good thing for the world that President Obama's presidency is ending in 10 days, because before long we would have been building Iran's centrifuges for it."
