Washington D.C. – Today, House Foreign Affairs Lead Republican Michael McCaul (R-TX) released the following statement on the 40th anniversary of the Iranian Revolution. 

Lead Republican McCaul:“Forty years after the Iranian Revolution, the government in Tehran endures as the world’s leading state sponsor of terror. Today, Iran persists as a destabilizing threat in the region and around the world due to its support for the Assad regime and terrorist groups such as Hezbollah and Hamas, proliferation of ballistic missiles, and taking of U.S. and other foreign hostages. Iran also continues to oppress its own people. The United States will continue to lead efforts to deny Iran access to nuclear weapons and apply pressure on the regime to uphold international norms and behave as a responsible nation.”
