Larson on Iran Nuclear Agreement
Washington – “I commend President Obama, Secretary Kerry, and Secretary Moniz for taking this tremendous step towards addressing one of the biggest international security threats – a nuclear-armed Iran. This is a historic moment, and I look forward to reviewing these details and discussing them with my constituents. To that end, I will be hosting a forum on Sunday, July 19th at the West Hartford Town Hall.
“However, this agreement should not diminish our need for vigilance as we continue to confront Iran on other issues. Much like an arms control agreement, the announced deal is limited only to ensuring Iran will no longer be capable of acquiring a nuclear weapon. Iran still retains a troubling human rights record and remains a major destabilizing force in the region, and we must continue to press for wider reforms.”
