Congressman Garamendi’s Statement in Support of Iranian Nuclear Agreement

Issues: Foreign Policy

"My top priority is what we all want: an Iran which never obtains a nuclear weapon. I believe that the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) is the best available option to achieve this goal. The JCPOA puts restrictions on Iran’s nuclear program. It blocks every pathway Iran could take to develop a nuclear weapon. Iran must also reduce the amount of enriched uranium it keeps on hand to less than that required for even a single nuclear weapon."
