|Dean of the U.S. House|
John Conyers, Jr.
“President Obama Administration's determined diplomatic efforts have yielded one of the great international agreements of our time: a verifiable deal to prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon.
“Concluding an agreement will not only promote long-term security in the Middle East, but also remove the short-term specter of a destructive military confrontation. While I plan to meticulously examine the proposed deal and consult closely with administration officials and the intelligence community in in the coming days, we have every reason to believe that this deal will make the Middle East and the broader world safer.
“The American people have been clear—they strongly prefer a negotiated agreement to the alternative of war and bloodshed. Today’s announcement is an important step towards achieving peace.”
