Kuster Statement on President Trump’s Decision to Decertify the Iran Nuclear Deal

Press Release

(Washington, DC) – Congresswoman Annie Kuster (NH-02) released the following statement on President Trump’s decision to decertify the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA):

“Our first priority must be ensuring that Iran is not able to obtain a nuclear weapon and President Trump’s announcement that he will decertify the Iran Deal is counter to that goal. Undermining our diplomatic efforts to contain Iran’s ability to produce a nuclear weapon would have serious consequences for efforts to rein in North Korea and other bad actors through diplomacy. I’m hopeful that reason will prevail in Congress and we will stand with our allies around the world to continue holding Iran to its obligations under the nuclear deal.”
