WASHINGTON, D.C. – House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) released the following statement regarding the Institute for Science and International Security’s (ISIS) report on Iran:

"The report that Iran may be a month away from possessing enough weapons-grade uranium to build a nuclear bomb is extremely alarming. Whether a month or a year, Iran's determined march toward possessing nuclear weapons is a direct and grave threat to the United States and our allies.

"Iran needs to immediately end its systematic noncompliance with the repeated demands of the U.N. Security Council and International Atomic Energy Agency. For the United States, all options, including the use of military force, should be on the table to prevent Iran from acquiring the world's most dangerous weapons. We all want negotiations to succeed, but time is clearly running out."
