Welch Statement on Trump Iran Announcement

Rep. Peter Welch (D-Vt.) issued the following statement on President Trump's announcement that the United States is withdrawing from the Iran nuclear deal:

"The carefully-negotiated Iran nuclear agreement has resulted in the most stringent verification and monitoring standards ever imposed on a nation, preventing Iran from developing or obtaining a nuclear weapon.

By carelessly casting it aside, President Trump has manufactured an international crisis that risks an armed conflict with a nuclear Iran. In doing so, he thumbed his nose at the grave warnings of our allies and ignored assurances by senior military officials and independent inspectors that Iran is, in fact, in compliance with the terms of the agreement.

The president offers no strategy on Iran. He offers no vision on the Middle East. And where American leadership is required, he has consistently displayed an ignorance of the complexity of world challenges as well as an inability to protect American interests abroad."
