Press Release
Deal is Most Responsible Action U.S. Can Take to Stop Iran’s Nuclear Development

Congresswoman Louise M. Slaughter (D-NY) announced today that she would support the negotiated deal to prevent Iran from acquiring a nuclear weapon and issued the following statement:

“After careful consideration of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, as well as my constituents’ views and experts’ opinions, I will support the Iran nuclear agreement,” said Rep. Slaughter. “The agreement was negotiated through an international effort by the United States, the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Russia, China, and Iran. This deal was unanimously approved by the United Nations Security Council. It is clear to me that this is the most responsible action that the United States and the international community can take to achieve our goal of ensuring that Iran is unable to build a nuclear weapon.”
