Paulsen Statement on Iran Deal Decision

Washington –Congressman Erik Paulsen (MN-03) today issued the following statement after the President announced the withdrawal of the United States from the Iran Nuclear Deal:

“The JCPOA was fundamentally flawed and it was hindering the ultimate objective of ensuring Iran doesn’t develop a nuclear weapon,”said Congressman Paulsen. “At the time we entered into the JCPOA, the sanctions regime was working. A return to strong sanctions is sound policy. Iran is the world’s leading state sponsor of terror and it continues to develop advanced ballistic missiles in violation of U.N. resolutions. I believe we need to work with our European allies to ensure that Iran does not develop a nuclear weapon, continue destabilizing the region and threaten the sovereignty of Israel.”
