Today, Congresswoman Doris Matsui (D-CA) issued the following statement on President Trump's decision to decertify the Iran Deal:

"This reckless decision is not in the best interest of our country or our global security. Countless experts and analysts have pointed to the extensive damage that will be caused if the United States abandons the JCPOA. While I continue to support ongoing efforts to ensure Iran's adherence to the agreement, I believe President Trump's decision to decertify compliance will hinder our work to prevent Iran from developing a nuclear weapon. And, wavering on our international commitment will damage our country's credibility abroad. I urge my colleagues in Congress to remain committed to this critical agreement."
