Senator David Perdue Statement on Iran Attending Multinational Meeting on Syria
WASHINGTON, D.C. – In advance of the multinational meeting tomorrow about ending the violence in Syria, U.S. Senator David Perdue (R-GA), a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, released the following statement:
“Completely removing Bashar al-Assad from power is paramount to the international community’s mission to defeat ISIS and resolve this dire humanitarian crisis. Inviting Iran to sit down at the table to discuss a solution for Syria is like calling in the arsonist to put out the fire.”
Senator Perdue, a vocal critic of President Obama’s bad Iran deal, also expressed his concerns about Iran’s involvement in the meeting during the Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing today. Watch his remarks here.
