WASHINGTON, DC – In response to the Administration’s recent announcement regarding the Iran Deal, U.S. Representative Will Hurd released the following statement:

"Our goals should be to deny the Iranian Government a path to a nuclear weapon and to terminate its support for terrorist groups. The JCPOA has not and would not achieve either. I hope during the wind down period before re-imposition of sanctions that we can work with our Allies to make Iran accountable to international norms, because the only way to achieve our goals is through international cooperation."
