Sen. Cruz Calls on Trump Administration to Immediately Cancel Civil-Nuclear Waivers

July 10, 2019



WASHINGTON, D.C. - U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, released the following statement today in response to a report published by the Institute for Science and International Security. The report revealed Iran's Fordow nuclear facility was never repurposed, as Iran committed to doing under the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), and that Iran retains a surge capability to produce weapon-grade uranium at the facility:

"Today's report once again demonstrates that the catastrophic Obama Iran nuclear deal created enormous danger for Americans and our allies. Fordow is a military bunker the Ayatollahs dug out of the side of a mountain so they could build nuclear bombs. Under the nuclear deal, it was supposed to be converted but it never was. Instead, Iran used the time and the billions they received from the deal to expand the facility, possibly in violation of restrictions in the deal itself. The Trump administration should immediately cancel the civil-nuclear waivers it has been issuing, which allow Iran to continue building up Fordow and other nuclear sites."
