Press Release

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Rep. Dan Newhouse (R-WA) released the following statement after the Obama Administration announced a final nuclear agreement with Iran that would end economic sanctions:

“In light of Iran’s lack of transparency in past international inspections, sponsorship of terrorism against the U.S. and our allies, and continued imprisonment of American citizens, any nuclear deal that does not prevent Iran from pursuing nuclear arms would lead to more instability and insecurity in the Middle East and the world,” said Rep. Newhouse. “Any proposed deal must block Iran from becoming a nuclear-threshold state before lifting billions of dollars in economic sanctions. I will closely examine the proposed deal’s impact on the safety of the American people and our allies, and I will reject a bad deal.”
