Gardner Sends Message to Iranian Leaders

Washington, D.C. – Senator Cory Gardner (R-CO) announced today that he, along with 46 other Senators, has signed an open letter to the leaders of Iran regarding negotiations with the United States about their nuclear program. The letter clarifies for Iranian leaders our constitutional system of government, and makes clear that any deal between President Obama and Ayatollah Khamenei that is not approved by the U.S. Congress could easily be modified or revoked in the future.                                       

“I want the leaders of Iran’s regime, the world’s leading state sponsor of terrorism, to know that no deal with the United States will be considered permanent without the approval of the Congress,” Gardner said. “The American people, through their representatives in Congress, will reject any deal that does not completely eliminate the threat of a nuclear Iran.”

The full text of the signed letter can be read here.
