Bipartisan Letter Urges Biden to Back ‘Comprehensive’ Agreement With Tehran

(JNS) A bipartisan group of congressional legislators sent a letter to U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken insisting that any agreement the Biden administration makes with Iran “must comprehensively address” the Islamic Republic’s burgeoning nuclear program, ballistic-missile program and its continued funding of terrorism.

The letter urges that “restrictions on Iran’s nuclear program must be extended until the regime conclusively demonstrates that it has no interest in a nuclear weapons program”; “diplomacy with Iran must limit not only the production of nuclear material but also ensure that Iran cannot develop a nuclear-capable ballistic missile”; and “Iran’s malign behavior throughout the Middle East must be addressed.”

“As Democrats and Republicans from across the political spectrum, we are united in preventing an Iranian nuclear weapon and addressing the wide range of illicit Iranian behavior,” the letter said in closing.

Signed by 70 Democrats and 70 Republicans, it was spearheaded by Reps. Anthony Brown (D-Md.) and Michael Waltz (R-Fla.).
