TURNER on Withdrawal From Iran Deal

May 8, 2018
Press Release

Chairman Mike Turner of the House Armed Services Subcommittee on Tactical Air and Land Forces, member of the House Intelligence Committee, and Chairman of the U.S. Delegation to the NATO Parliamentary Assembly, released the following statement following the President’s decision to withdraw from the Iran Deal:

“The Iran Deal is a deeply flawed agreement. As I have previously said, this deal 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 in the future. However, without proof that Iran is in violation of the agreement, it is a mistake to fully withdraw from this deal. Now, we need to work with our allies to fix this flawed agreement to ensure the world is not facing a nuclear Iran.”
