TURNER on Iran Deal

Oct 13, 2017
Press Release

Chairman Mike Turner (OH-10) of the House Armed Services Subcommittee on Tactical Air and Land Forces and member of the House Intelligence Committee released the following statement:

“I was opposed to the Iran Nuclear Deal because it has an insufficient inspection regime, insufficiently addresses long range ICBM missile development, and is limited to 10 years, giving the appearance of permission to develop nuclear weapons during the 11th year. However, in my briefings from the International Atomic Energy Agency, it appears that Iran is materially complying with the provisions that require Iran abandon pursuit of the development of nuclear weapons. After the President’s statements today, the international community and Congress must provide sufficient leverage for amending the agreement in ways that could ensure Iran never obtains nuclear weapons.”
