Miami, FL — U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL), Vice Chairman of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, released a statement after the Biden Administration eased sanctions on the Iranian regime in an effort to restart nuclear talks. President Biden previously said the United States would not ease sanctions before Iran stopped enriching uranium beyond the limits of the dangerously flawed Iranian nuclear deal.
“The Biden Administration’s posture toward Iran is nothing short of reckless,” Rubio said. “Not long after Iranian-backed forces attacked Americans in Iraq, President Biden is desperately trying to re-enter a failed deal and provide sanctions relief to the Iranian regime. The President must make clear that he understands that Khamenei cannot be trusted to honor international agreements, and that the United States will not play into the hands of the Iranians for the next four years.”
