Durbin Statement On Senate GOP Letter To Leaders Of Iran
WASHINGTON—U.S. Senate Democratic Whip Dick Durbin (D-IL) released the following statement regarding an open letter signed by Senate Republicans to the leaders of the Islamic Republic of Iran:
This is a cynical effort by Republican Senators to undermine sensitive international negotiations—it weakens America’s hand and highlights our political divisions to the rest of the world. Understand that if these negotiations fail, a military response to Iran developing their nuclear capability becomes more likely. These Republican Senators should think twice about whether their political stunt is worth the threat of another war in the Middle East.
