WASHINGTON, D.C. -- House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) today released the following statement on U.S. - Iranian nuclear talks:
“Any agreement that does not require the full and complete halting of the Iranian nuclear program is worse than no deal at all.
"The interim agreement under consideration appears to abandon the repeated and binding demands of the IAEA and UN Security Council for the full cessation of Iran's nuclear activities. All of Iran's enrichment activities, its heavy water reactor at Arak, and its history of weaponization research are of profound concern and should be addressed.
"Sanctions brought the Iranians to the table, but history tells us to be wary of their tactics. We should not race to accept a bad deal, but should keep up the pressure until the Iranians are willing to make significant concessions.”
