Press Release

WASHINGTON - Today, Congressman Lee Zeldin (R, NY-1) tweeted the following with regards to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), commonly known as the Iran Nuclear Deal:

“Iran Deal: ‘Fix it or nix it?’. Wrong to think it needs to be Congress' call, our allies', or @POTUS'. Iran either fixes it or nixes it. 2 choices. Iran either lifts the sunset provision, strengthens verification regime & ends other nefarious, illegal activities...or not.” View the tweet here.

Last week, during a House Foreign Affairs Committee hearing, Rep. Zeldin questioned Acting Assistant Secretary of State for Near Eastern Affairs David Satterfield regarding Iran’s violations of the letter of the JCPOA, during which the Acting Assistant Secretary falsely insisted Iran has not violated the letter of the Iran Nuclear Deal.
