Casey Statement on Iran Agreement

Washington, DC- U.S. Senator Bob Casey (D-PA), a member of the National Security Working Group, released a statement following an agreement on a Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) regarding Iran’s nuclear program:

"Preventing Iran from acquiring a nuclear weapon is critical to our national security and that of our partners in the region, especially Israel.  That’s why I have consistently sponsored and supported sanctions against Iran, which brought the regime to the table in the first place, and legislation like the Iran Nuclear Agreement Review Act and the Nuclear Weapon Free Iran Act of 2015.

I appreciate the hard work that Secretary Kerry and his team put into these negotiations. Over the coming days, I will be conducting a thorough review of the agreement to evaluate whether it protects our national security interests.”
