150 House Democrats support Biden push to reenter Iran nuclear deal

Sharing is Caring!

At least 150 House Democrats have signed a letter expressing support for President-elect Joe Biden’s push to reenter the Iran nuclear deal, a key number of lawmakers that could block congressional attempts to prevent the move.

The Democrats say Biden’s push to reenter the international agreement if Iran returns to compliance should be used as a starting point for further negotiations addressing Tehran’s “other malign behavior.”

“We are united in our support for swiftly taking the necessary diplomatic steps to restore constraints on Iran’s nuclear program and return both Iran and the United States to compliance with the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) as a starting point for further negotiations,” the lawmakers wrote. The letter was led by Reps. David Price (D-N.C.); Barbara Lee (D-Calif.), Jan Schakowsky (D-Ill.), Gregory Meeks (D-N.Y.), Joaquin Castro (D-Texas), Abigail Spanberger (D-Va.) and Brad Sherman (D-Calif.).
