Kirk Statement on Extension of Iran Nuclear Talks

Friday, Jul 18, 2014

CHICAGO – U.S. Senator Mark Kirk (R-Ill.) today released the following statement after the White House announced an extension of negotiations with Iran over its nuclear weapons program:

“We can't let Iran buy more time to make a nuclear bomb. While the United States has repeatedly offered extremely generous incentives for Iran to dismantle its illicit nuclear infrastructure, Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei keeps rejecting the offers. It’s time for expanded non-military pressure to back up our diplomatic outreach to Iran. It’s time to support the Menendez-Kirk bill for more non-military pressure on Iran.”
