Pelosi Statement on Corker Legislation

San Francisco – Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi released the following statement on legislation introduced by Senator Bob Corker of Tennessee:

“Once again, I want to commend President Obama for bringing together the P5 +1 nations and successfully negotiating the framework agreement with Iran.

“Diplomacy has taken us to a framework agreement founded on vigilance and enforcement, and these negotiations must be allowed to proceed unencumbered.

“Senator Corker’s legislation undermines these international negotiations and represents an unnecessary hurdle to achieving a strong, final agreement.

“In the weeks ahead, we must give this diplomatic framework room to succeed so that we can judge a June 30th agreement on its merits.”
