Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) today issued the following statement after attending Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s address to Congress:
“Prime Minister Netanyahu provided a stark assessment of the dangerous path the administration has taken us on through its negotiations with Iran. Allowing Iran to retain its nuclear infrastructure even as it does not change its behavior is unacceptable.
“Congress should pass additional sanctions on Iran as soon as possible, and it should also ensure that any deal is submitted to Congress for a formal review. I will continue working to increase pressure on Iran to ensure that the regime does not acquire nuclear weapons.
“We must not trade away U.S. and Israeli security for vague commitments from a terrorist-sponsoring regime that has killed Americans and threatens to annihilate Israel.”
