CHATTANOOGA, Tennessee – U.S. Senator Bob Corker (R-Tenn.), ranking member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, made the following statement on the Iran nuclear negotiations.
“Since the beginning, I have been concerned about a series of rolling extensions becoming the norm and reducing our leverage. However, I would rather the administration continue to negotiate than agree to a bad deal that would only create more instability in the region and around the world,” said Corker. “With so much riding on these talks for the security of our nation and that of the region, Congress must have the opportunity to weigh in before implementation of any final agreement and begin preparing alternatives, including tougher sanctions, should negotiations fail.”
