Gillibrand Statement On The Iran Nuclear Agreement

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand today issued the following statement on the announcement of the Iran nuclear agreement:

“I strongly supported and helped pass the sanctions that were put in place that brought Iran to the table, but sanctions alone won't work. The best outcome for the national security interests of the United States and Israel is a strong, verifiable deal that prevents Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon. Now that the deal is complete, it is Congress's duty to look long and hard at the details. I want to read all of the details, especially on the verification components, before making a determination whether this is a good deal.”
