Hatch Reacts to Obama Administration’s Iran Nuclear Agreement

Sen. Orrin G. Hatch, R-Utah, the senior Republican in the United States Senate, issued the following statement following the Obama administration’s announcement of a nuclear deal with Iran:

“For decades, the Iranian regime has been dangerous in its aims and duplicitous in its quest for nuclear weapons.  Any deal that removes sanctions without robust means of ensuring the regime's disarmament and compliance with its international obligations is worse than no deal at all.  Empowered by the bipartisan Iran Nuclear Agreement Review Act that we passed into law earlier this year, Congress must fully scrutinize this agreement and must not hesitate to oppose the deal if it endangers the security of the United States or our allies in the region.”  

Senator Hatch was a co-sponsor of the Iran Nuclear Agreement Review Act.
