Today, Congressman Hank Johnson (GA-04) released the following statement after President Obama announced that the negotiators of the P5+1 nations have reached a nuclear agreement with Iran:
"I applaud the President for his leadership in negotiating this historic agreement with Iran that will prevent it from obtaining a nuclear weapon. The President has delivered on his promise to seek solutions through diplomacy, not war and reminds the world that America can lead through peace. I look forward to thoroughly reviewing the agreement and for an honest debate in Congress. Thus far, I am optimistic that with our allies we have put in place a strong inspections and verification regime that must be given a chance. No deal means a greater chance of more war in the Middle East."
