Washington, D.C. – House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Ed Royce (R-CA) issued the below statement after the administration imposed sanctions on 25 Iranian entities in the wake of Iran’s latest ballistic missile launch:

“Iran’s dangerous and provocative acts are a direct threat to the United States and our allies.  I’m glad the administration is taking long-overdue steps to hold the regime accountable.  I look forward to working with the administration to build on these designations, push back against Iran’s destructive policies, and promote stability in the Middle East.”
