Wyoming Congresswoman and House Republican Conference Chair Liz Cheney released the following statement after Iran violated the cap on its stockpile of low-enriched uranium:

“The Obama Administration’s disastrous nuclear deal left the rogue regime in Tehran with its nuclear capabilities intact, legitimized its enrichment activities, and willfully ignored its malign nuclear ambitions. Iran’s actions this week are the direct result of President Obama’s failure. His terrible agreement guaranteed Iran the right to enrich uranium, fundamentally undermining the past success of the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT). 

“The Trump Administration should continue its successful maximum pressure campaign, and increase sanctions against Iran’s nuclear infrastructure.”
