WESTCHESTER COUNTY, N.Y. – U.S. Rep. Nita Lowey (D-Westchester) announced Tuesday her opposition to the P5+1 nuclear agreement with Iran, explicitly stating that she, “cannot support this agreement before Congress.”

“Preventing Iran from developing a nuclear weapon is an essential national security imperative. Since the nuclear agreement was reached between Iran and the P5+1 countries, I have reviewed its details and consulted with officials in the Obama Administration, regional experts, foreign leaders, Congressional colleagues and my constituents.

“In my judgment, sufficient safeguards are not in place to address the risks associated with the agreement,” said Lowey.

“This agreement will leave the international community with limited options in 15 years to prevent nuclear breakout in Iran, which will be an internationally-recognized nuclear threshold state, capable of producing highly enriched uranium. I am greatly concerned that the agreement lacks a crystal-clear statement that the international community reserves the right to take all military, economic and diplomatic measures necessary during the course of the deal and beyond to deter Iran from ever developing a nuclear weapon,” she continued.
