Senator David Perdue: Empty Negotiation Terms Should Result in an Empty Negotiation Table

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator David Perdue (R-GA) today released the following statement urging Secretary of State John Kerry to suspend nuclear negotiations with Iran:

“By running out the negotiating clock again, Iran has signaled to the world they are not serious about dismantling their nuclear weapons program. From red lines to deadline extensions, the Obama Administration has been dangerously accommodating and we cannot continue to reward Iran’s bad behavior. It is time for us to stand firm instead of moving the goal posts yet again. Iran’s empty negotiation terms should result in an empty negotiation table, which is why I urge Secretary Kerry to suspend nuclear negotiations with Iran. We must return to a position of strength and insist on a better deal. If one cannot be achieved, then the United States should walk away and enforce even stronger sanctions.”
