Washington, D.C. -Senator Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas) today released the following statement in response to Iran's recent provocations:

"I join the administration in condemning Iran's provocative and dangerous behavior. The last administration might have been willing to look the other way, but the Iranian regime should be aware this administration and Congress won't tolerate deliberate defiance of international agreements and bald-faced attacks against our allies any longer. If Iran continues to thumb its nose at the world, there will be consequences."
