U.S. Rep. Moore Praises Iran Nuclear Deal Moving Forward
“Thanks to this comprehensive agreement and President Obama’s leadership, we are choosing peace over military intervention.”
Earlier today, Congresswoman Gwen Moore (WI-04), Ranking Member on the Financial Services Committee’s Monetary Policy and Trade Subcommittee, released the following statement regarding her support for the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA):
“Despite numerous attempts by both House and Senate Republicans to derail the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, it is clear that the historic nuclear agreement with Iran will move forward with U.S. support. Because of this landmark deal, we now have the capacity to significantly reduce Iran’s stockpiles of enriched uranium and block them from producing weapons-grade plutonium. More importantly, this agreement prevents Iran from acquiring the material needed to develop a nuclear bomb within the next three months.
“Thanks to this comprehensive agreement and President Obama’s leadership, we are choosing peace over military intervention. I commend my democratic congressional colleagues for considering this deal on the merits, especially in the face of baseless speculation, fear mongering, and scare tactics from those who sought to scuttle this important diplomatic achievement.
“Now begins the hard work of implementing the deal and ensuring Iran’s compliance with its rigorous requirements. I take pride in knowing that the U.S. will now be able to join our global partners at the table in this key phase to prevent Iran from developing a nuclear weapon.”
