Josh Gottheimer Statement on New Sanctions Against Iran’s Ballistic Missile Program

Feb 03, 2017

Washington, D.C. – Today Congressman Josh Gottheimer (NJ-5), a member of Financial Services Subcommittee on Terrorism and Illicit Finance, made the following statement on new sanctions against supporters of the Iranian ballistic missile program:

“As someone who was opposed early on to the dangerous and misguided Iran nuclear deal, I support decisive actions like those taken today against those supporting Iran’s ballistic missile program.  The United States cannot stand idly by while Iran continues to destabilize the Middle East and support dangerous entities including Hezbollah, radical militias in Iraq, the Assad regime, and others who pose a grave threat to the United States and our allies. I am committed to working on the House Financial Services Terrorism and Illicit Finance Subcommittee to ensure the enforcement of sanctions against Iran and those supporting its missile program.”
