Congresswoman Hartzler's statement on the extension of nuclear negotiations with Iran

December 2, 2014
Press Release

Congresswoman Vicky Hartzler (MO-4) has released the following statement on the extension of nuclear negotiations with Iran: “I am disappointed and extremely concerned with the extension of negotiations over Iran’s nuclear program and the continued relaxing of economic sanctions against Tehran. Every day that we ease sanctions or fail to apply new ones is another day Iran races toward a nuclear weapons capability. Sanctions brought Iran to the negotiating table in the first place, and these sanctions must be strengthened to convince the Iranians to stop their treacherous quest for nuclear weapons. I believe Congress must put renewed pressure on Iran. The Senate needs to pass S. 1881 – the Nuclear Weapon Free Iran Act before going home. We cannot allow Iran to hold the world hostage with nuclear weapons. Now is the time to act.”
