Announces Two Iran Hearings This Week

Today, U.S. Rep. Ed Royce (R-CA), Chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, announced that on Friday, September 11, the Committee will convene a hearing entitled, “Implications of a Nuclear Agreement with Iran (Part V).”  The hearing will begin at 9 a.m. and follows a hearing on Wednesday, September 9, to examine the Iran nuclear deal, where former generals will provide their perspectives of the agreement.  Details about the hearing on September 9 can be found here

Chairman Royce said: “This agreement is fatally flawed. The Obama Administration has committed to providing Iran permanent sanctions relief from the U.S. in return for temporary and inadequate constraints on Iran’s nuclear program. It will permit Iran to launch an industrial-scale nuclear program after 10 years, continue to block international inspectors from its secret nuclear facilities, hide its past work on a nuclear weapon, and emerge with its record wiped clean. This hearing is part of a series to examine the nuclear agreement and discuss ways to lessen the fallout from this bad deal.”
