Congressman Jeff Fortenberry (R-NE) today issued the following statement on the Iran Nuclear Deal.

"Iran's aggressive posturing throughout the Middle East has made it harder to trust a fragile nuclear agreement. Iran's proxy military actions, support for violence, and ongoing ballistic missile taunting do not help during this tender period of testing a new relationship with the West. Broadly considered, Iran has generally complied with the structural components of the nuclear deal, but the aggression sadly undercuts the broader opportunity for even the mildest rapprochement."

Fortenberry voted against the original Iran Nuclear Agreement in 2015. Fortenberry serves on the House Appropriations Committee and the Subcommittee on State and Foreign Operations.
