Corker: Document Reveals Key Flaw in Iran Nuclear Deal

CLEVELAND – U.S. Senator Bob Corker (R-Tenn.), chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, today made the following statement regarding an Associated Press report that reveals how certain restrictions imposed under the Iran nuclear deal end after 10 years, allowing Tehran to reduce the time necessary for developing a nuclear weapon.

“The details in these documents - which my colleagues and I had access to very early on - were among the many reasons I opposed this nuclear deal,” said Corker. “As many of us warned, Iran can continue to research advanced centrifuges and will be able to industrialize their nuclear capability when many of the restrictions end in 10 years.”
