Daines: Obama Administration Extension Weakens U.S. Security

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Senator Steve Daines today issued the following statement on the Obama administration’s decision to extend the nuclear negotiations with Iran once again.

“The Obama administration’s decision to ignore another deadline weakens our security by empowering Iran to continue its dangerous behavior without consequence. Our desire for negotiations to succeed should not blind the Obama administration from the reality that only Iran is benefitting from the current approach.  I believe Congress must impose stronger sanctions without further delay to exact real pressure on the Iranian regime to eliminate its capacity to build nuclear weapons.”
