Washington, DC – U.S. Senator Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) released the statement below regarding today’s announcement of a deal between the United States, its allies, and Iran to prevent Iran from developing a nuclear weapon:

“Whenever possible, I believe the U.S. should seek to advance our security goals through diplomacy rather than force. The President and his team, particularly Secretary Kerry, deserve tremendous credit for pursuing this diplomatic solution to one of our world’s most pressing security challenges. I now look forward to reviewing the details of the proposed deal in the weeks ahead to determine whether it truly meets our nation’s goal of preventing Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon.”
