Rubio Comments on Iran’s Nuclear Misbehavior

May 8, 2019 | Press Releases

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) issued a statement after Iranian President Hassan Rouhani announced the regime’s intention to violate, once again, its 2015 nuclear deal with Britain, France, Germany, Russia and China:
“The Iranian regime blatantly cheated on the flawed nuclear deal by hiding its massive ‘Atomic Archive’ for covertly developing nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles from international inspectors, and it is now moving to violate the agreement’s modest and temporary limits on its nuclear program.
“Iran’s ongoing nuclear misbehavior underscores why the United States was absolutely right to withdraw from the flawed deal, and also why the European nations and other partners must do all they can to reinforce the U.S.-led international campaign to impose maximum pressure against the regime in Tehran. The people of Iran deserve better as they continue to suffer under the Iranian regime’s criminal corruption, massive economic mismanagement and systemic human rights abuses, in addition to its support for terrorists and the murderous Assad regime, ballistic missile aggression, and nuclear misbehavior.”
Rubio is a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and Senate Select Committee on Intelligence.
