Cotton Statement on Cotton-Corker Legislative Strategy to Address Flaws in Iran Nuclear Deal

October 13, 2017

Washington, D.C. - Ahead of President Donald Trump's announcement on Iran later today, Senator Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas) released the following statement on his work on a comprehensive legislative strategy to address flaws in the nuclear agreement:

"Lawmakers need to do now what we couldn't do two years ago: unite around an Iran strategy that truly stops Iran's nuclear weapons program and empowers the United States and our allies to combat the full spectrum of Iran's imperial aggression. The legislation Senator Corker and I have been working on with the administration will address the major flaws in the original Iran deal: the sunset clauses, the weak inspections regime, and the failure to restrict Iran's development of advanced centrifuges. And it will create time and leverage for firm diplomacy-together with our allies-to work and neutralize the threat of a nuclear Iran permanently."
