Today, U.S. Congressman Scott Peters (CA-52) released the following statement after President Trump announced his intention to pull out of Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) between Iran, the U.S., European allies, China, and Russia:
“I voted for the Iran deal because it made sure that America was at the table to negotiate. This action devastates America’s position as a reliable world leader, and emboldens Iranian political extremism. I stand ready to work with my colleagues to support international peace and security, and mitigate consequences of this irresponsible decision,” said Rep. Peters.
