Washington, D.C. - Senator Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas) released the following statement on Iran's announcement that it is violating the limits on its stockpile of low enriched uranium permitted by the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action:

"Iran has abandoned even the pretense that its nuclear program is meant for peace. Iran's ayatollahs are using the threat of nuclear enrichment to extort America into restoring the terrible deal that enriched Iran's military and proxies while imposing zero consequences for their acts of terror. The United States ought to increase the pressure on Iran so it abandons this cynical campaign of extortion and behaves like a normal nation."
