Senator Gillibrand Statement On President Trump’s Decision Not To Recertify The Iran Nuclear Deal

Oct 13, 2017

Washington, DC – U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand released the following statement after President Donald J. Trump announced his decision not to recertify the Iran nuclear deal:

“It is unfortunate that President Trump has ignored the findings of his Secretary of Defense and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs that Iran is complying with the agreement and that the agreement is in our national interest, and has chosen not to certify the Iran deal. This purely political act undermines America’s position in the world and strengthens Iran’s, while sending an unfortunate message to North Korea. Congress must reject any effort to unilaterally renegotiate the agreement and instead focus on working with our allies to ensure implementation of the agreement and to address Iran’s other bad behavior.”
