Sen. Franken: Newly Announced Agreement is Important Step to Preventing Iran from Getting Nuclear Weapon

WASHINGTON, D.C. [04/02/15]—Today, U.S. Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) released the following statement in response to the United States and partnering countries coming to a breakthrough agreement with Iran to limit its nuclear program.

“Americans want to prevent Iran from getting a nuclear weapon, and they would prefer to do it through diplomacy rather than military action,” said Sen. Franken. “This breakthrough agreement is an important step toward that goal. I believe that Congress now should give our negotiators time and space to work out the details of a strong, verifiable comprehensive agreement.”
