May 8, 2018 Issues: Defense and National Security

Washington, DC - Representative Dave Reichert (R-WA) released the following statement after today's announcement regarding the Iran nuclear deal:

“I have disagreed with the Iran nuclear deal since the beginning. This deal gave Iran the benefit of the doubt, and Iran’s criminal actions since the deal was signed prove that we must do better. As additional sanctions are put in place, we must continue to work with our allies to form an agreement that addresses not just Iran’s nuclear capabilities, but all of their destabilizing activities that impact our security and the security of our allies. I agree that holding Iran accountable, in the near-term and the long-term, is non-negotiable. It is vital we work toward that goal.”
