Burgess statement on Iran nuclear agreement

After President Obama publicly released the agreement between Iran, the U.S., and the international community this morning, Congressman Michael C. Burgess released the following statement regarding the deal: 

“Despite assurances from the Obama administration that these negotiations would end Iran’s nuclear programs and that sanctions would not be lifted until their nation met concrete demands, this deal reflects otherwise,” Rep. Burgess said. “This agreement means billions in sanction relief, and an open door to continue their reckless foreign policy agenda.

“Though I am relieved to see negotiations conclude, this product – which paves the path toward a nuclear Iran – is a risk to our national security and global interests.”
