Gardner Statement on Sanctions Against Iran

Washington, DC – US Senator Cory Gardner (R-CO), a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, released the following statement after the announcement by the Trump Administration that a new wave of sanctions against Iran are being imposed: 

“I welcome today’s announcement of new sanctions against Iran,” Gardner said. "For eight years, the past administration failed to deal with the Iranian threat in any meaningful way, going so far as to enter into a flawed agreement that gave Iran tens of billions of dollars that allows them to keep testing ballistic missiles, financing terror groups, and threatening our closest ally, Israel. We must punish any and all behavior by the Iranian regime that threatens American interests and those of our close allies."
