WASHINGTON, D.C.—Today Congressman Ted Poe (TX-02) issued the following statement:

“Another deadline has come and gone and once again Iran wins. The United States and our allies are being played. Restarting the clock once again gives Iran the time it needs to make its nuclear ambitions a reality. The US must be clear and unequivocal: there will be no reductions in sanctions without verified steps to show that Tehran is abandoning, not just freezing, its nuclear weapons program.”

Poe is Chairman of the House Subcommittee on Terrorism, Non-proliferation and Trade.
