Press Release

Washington, DC [7/14/15] – Today, Congressman Tim Walz (D-MN) released the following statement after President Obama announced that the negotiators of the P5+1 nations have reached a nuclear agreement with Iran:

“I applaud the President, Secretary Kerry, and our international allies for reaching this agreement. While the announcement of the deal is indeed historic, and the Administration and our allies should be commended for their tireless work, the people, through their elected representatives in Congress, will have the final say. We cannot accept a bad deal, nor can we allow ideology to undermine a good one. Congress must act in good faith, make the hard choices, and do the job we were elected to do. Over the coming days and weeks, I look forward to reviewing the deal vigorously.”
