U.S. SENATE News:

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Sen. Tom Udall issued the following statement Friday on the diplomatic framework reached by the United States, five other world powers and Iran on a Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action regarding Iran’s nuclear program:

"The goal of the framework presented yesterday — accomplished through an intensive diplomatic effort by multiple countries — is to reduce Iran's nuclear capability while providing for extensive verification measures to preclude nuclear weapons development. As negotiators work on a final plan, I would stress that monitoring, verification, and enforcement are key components to any agreement, and Iran should know that America will act decisively if Iran violates its commitments on this grave and important issue. Finally, I believe the Congress needs to allow the administration to continue to have the space to negotiate the final agreement, and therefore should not pass legislation which would only complicate the progress towards a diplomatic solution.”
