Gardner Statement on Benjamin Netanyahu’s Address

Washington, D.C. – Senator Cory Gardner (R-CO) released the following statement on Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s address to a joint meeting of Congress today:

“Prime Minister Netanyahu gave an incredibly important address to the United States Congress today. He emphasized the threat that a nuclear Iran would pose to Israel and America, and made it clear that any deal that gives the Iranian regime a path to nuclear weapons is unacceptable. His clear-headed analysis of Iran as the world’s leading sponsor of terror dedicated to the destruction of Israel and America provides crucial context for ongoing negotiations. The United States must make the safety and security of our ally Israel a top priority of our foreign policy. We cannot allow the tentacles of terror the appearance of an opportunity to do harm to America and its allies.”
