WASHINGTON – Today, Senator Lee issued the following statement after President Obama announced he had reached an agreement with Iran on nuclear weapons.

“I will be taking the next 60 days to review President Obama’s nuclear agreement with Iran and discuss it with my colleagues and our military leaders.  I am concerned that in the administration’s desperation to reach an agreement compromises were made on important standards such as inspections and verification procedures, and that the immediate sanctions relief provided by this deal will only increase Iran’s ability to finance its terrorist proxies to destabilize the Middle East and threaten the United States,” Lee said.
