Rubio on Extension of Iran Sanctions Waivers and New Measures Against Iran’s Atomic Energy Agency

Washington, D.C. — U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) issued the following statement after the Trump Administration announced it will extend sanctions waivers on Iran’s civil nuclear program. 

“The Iranian regime continues to violate the limits of the nuclear deal, yet it continues to receive direct assistance from Vladimir Putin’s Russian regime, China, and other foreign countries who are contributing to its nuclear program. While I am glad to see new sanctions imposed against Iran’s Atomic Energy Organization and its chief, the administration should terminate the controversial sanctions waivers on Iran’s civil nuclear program and exert maximum pressure on the regime in Tehran.”

Rubio is a member of the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations and the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence. He is also Majority Administrative Cochairman of the Senate National Security Working Group.
