WASHINGTON – In a speech on the Senate floor today, U.S. Senator John Boozman (R-AR) encouraged his colleagues to stand with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in advance of his address to Congress tomorrow and stressed that the current talks must result in an agreement that requires the Iranian regime to fully eliminate its nuclear program.
"Now, we seem to be moving the goalposts from the dismantling of Iran’s nuclear program to containing it. That’s not what the President told us these talks were going to accomplish. That’s not what six UN resolutions intended to prevent. And that is certainly not something this Congress should allow to happen without our say. Nothing short of full elimination of Iran’s nuclear program can honestly be considered a victory. If these talks fail to produce an agreement that requires that of Iran, Congress must have the authority to reject it,” Boozman said.
