Senator David Perdue: We Cannot Trust Iran To Play By The Rules

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator David Perdue (R-GA), a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, released the following statement after reports of Iran launching ballistic missiles:

“Not even two months have passed since President Obama naively implemented his nuclear deal with Iran, and this rogue regime has violated international law multiple times by launching nuclear-capable ballistic missiles—most recently today. Iran’s repeated and blatant violations demonstrate that we cannot trust Iran to play by the rules. This latest ballistic missile test is a direct violation of United Nations Security Council Resolution 2231. Therefore, we need to strengthen sanctions and go after the foreign banks and companies that finance and otherwise support Iran’s ballistic missile program, as well as those that supply this technology.”
