McCaul Finds Admin Decision to Waive Iran Sanctions “Deeply Troubling”Press Release
Washington, D.C. – House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Michael McCaul issued the following statement on the Biden administration’s decision to waive sanctions on nonproliferation activities involving Iran.
“I am deeply troubled by the administration’s decision to waive sanctions on nonproliferation activities involving Iran, despite Iran’s continued noncompliance with its Comprehensive Safeguards Agreement and the potential benefit to Russia’s state-owned energy giant, Rosatom. This decision further undermines international nonproliferation norms and is inconsistent with the administration’s stated policy to support Ukraine. Rosatom cannot be allowed to profit from work in Iran while it actively fuels the Kremlin’s unprovoked war of aggression against Ukraine.”
