Sen. Whitehouse Statement on Nuclear Deal with Iran

Washington, DC – U.S. Senator Sheldon Whitehouse released the statement below regarding the agreement on Iran’s nuclear program announced last night by President Obama:
 
“This agreement has the potential to change the trajectory of events in the Middle East.  It is only an opening step, as two sides begin to emerge from decades of enmity.  Ultimately the Iranian nuclear weapons program must be fully shut down, and blind trust on our part would not be wise.  With proper follow-up, however, this could mark an historic turning point toward a more peaceful world.  I commend Secretary Kerry and the President.”
