Corker-Graham-Menendez Bill Must Be Passed
Washington, DC (April 2, 2015) - Today, the Republican Jewish Coalition released the following statement regarding an "agreement on parameters" from the P5+1 Iranian nuclear talks.
RJC Executive Director Matt Brooks said:
"We applaud the President and his statement when he says he welcomes a robust debate on the parameters for an agreement. We are pleased that Senator Corker has reaffirmed his commitment to a Congressional vote. Now is the time for the Corker-Graham-Menendez bill to be passed so that this deal is transparent and has the necessary Congressional oversight.
"This is not a time for celebration but a time for analysis of the implication and ramifications of this framework. This is a foundational document and is not yet a verifiable deal.
"It is troubling that the Iranians are so elated with this agreement. Those worried about a nuclear Iran must remain vigilant as centrifuges keep spinning and enriching uranium and yet another stage of negotiations is poised to begin."
