U.S. Senator Tammy Baldwin Statement on the Iran Nuclear Negotiations

Washington D.C. – U.S. Senator Tammy Baldwin released the following statement today on Iran Nuclear Negotiations:

“It is in America’s national security interest to prevent Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons capabilities.  I continue to believe the diplomatic path—backed by tough international sanctions and a robust compliance regime—is the best option available to achieve that outcome.  The negotiations, which now have been extended, will continue to be governed by an agreement that secures from Iran concessions that amount to the first meaningful limits on its nuclear program in nearly a decade.  Progress was made during this negotiating period, so I believe it’s better for our national security to continue working for an agreement and keeping the pressure on Iran, than to walk away. While I recognize there are complex challenges to reach a long-term solution, I remain hopeful that an agreement can be reached that verifiably prevents Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons capabilities.”
