Washington, DC -- Colorado U.S. Senator Michael Bennet issued the following statement on the ongoing nuclear negotiations with Iran:
"Any potential deal resulting from the ongoing negotiations must prevent Iran from ever becoming a nuclear-armed state. It should limit Iran's use of certain technologies, and include a strong international verification regime to ensure Iran cannot use any ‘break out' or covertly ‘sneak out' tactic to complete such a weapon. Relief from sanctions should be contingent on Iran holding up its end of the bargain.
"The current negotiations with Iran represent a historic shift in Iran's relations with the United States and the West. We are hopeful that a deal can be reached and that Congress will be sufficiently consulted throughout this process."
