Gardner: “Yet Another Example of Iranian Aggression”

Washington, DC – Senator Cory Gardner (R-CO), member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, issued the following statement on reports developing today that Iran Revolutionary Guard Patrol boats have fired upon, intercepted, and boarded a commercial vessel in the Strait of Hormuz:

“This aggression from Iran, the world’s leading state sponsor of terrorism, is yet another example of this rogue regime’s reckless behavior that the international community cannot - and must not - tolerate. As we continue to negotiate with the Iranian regime, which is committed to openly confronting the United States and our allies, I urge the Administration to take all necessary action to repel Iranian belligerence.”
