WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congresswoman Elizabeth Esty (CT-5) released the following statement regarding the announcement of a comprehensive nuclear agreement with Iran.

“I commend President Obama and Secretaries Kerry and Moniz on their leadership in reaching a comprehensive agreement. As I begin to review the agreement, my priority is ensuring that this deal can verifiably prevent a nuclear-armed Iran. As with any nuclear arms deal, we must evaluate this proposal not based on trust and faith, but on cold, hard analysis of what best advances the national security interests of the United States and what best enhances global stability.”
