Senator David Perdue Statement On Extension Of Iran Sanctions Act
“We took action to reauthorize key sanctions, giving President-elect Trump a full menu of options to implement against Iran for any future transgressions.”
WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator David Perdue (R-GA) today released the following statement after the U.S. Senate voted to reauthorize and extend the Iran Sanctions Act:
“President Obama never should have waived key sanctions on Iran. Before the ink was dry on his dangerous nuclear deal, the rogue nation test-fired ballistic missiles and accumulated excess heavy water, which could be used for making plutonium bombs. Since then, Iran has continued to threaten our strategic allies in the Middle East and weaponized terrorist groups across the volatile region. Today, we took action to reauthorize key sanctions, giving President-elect Trump a full menu of options to implement against Iran for any future transgressions. I look forward to working with President-elect Trump to hold Iran accountable for its ballistic missile development, support for terrorism, and other illicit activity.”
Senator Perdue has introduced several pieces of legislation to hold Iran accountable, including a bill to prohibit cash payments to state sponsors of terror, and another to improve oversight of the implementation of President Obama’s nuclear deal with Iran.
