Washington, D.C. – Congressman Michael C. Burgess, M.D. (R-TX) today issued the following statement in reaction to news that talks to dismantle large parts of Iran's nuclear program were extended by another seven months:

"The world looks to the United States in moments of global uncertainty, and this most recent action -- or inaction -- by the Obama administration appears not only weak, but dangerous. Instead of making a strong statement against a country that is a threat to global peace and has a deplorable human rights record, this administration has showed weakness and fragility by offering a seven-month extension. Stability in this region is in the best interest of the United States and its allies. It is time we see strong leadership from the Obama administration, who should hold Iran accountable for its actions."
