Sen. Cruz: European Partners Confirm Iran Committed an Act of War
Urges President Trump to invoke the snapback mechanism in United Nations Security Council Resolution 2231 and restore U.N. sanctions against the Ayatollahs
September 24, 2019
WASHINGTON, D.C. - U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, today issued a statement after Britain, France, and Germany said that Iran was responsible from the recent attack on oil facilities in Saudi Arabia:
"This announcement by our European partners confirms what those of us who had directly seen the evidence always knew: Iran committed an act of war aimed at harming our economy and thwarting President Trump's maximum pressure campaign against its regime. I applaud President Trump and Secretary Pompeo for the prompt, effective, and quiet diplomacy they undertook to ensure our allies were also able to evaluate that evidence. They arrived at the same conclusion, despite the best efforts of the Iran echo chamber, which orchestrated a media campaign of denial as part of their effort to preserve the catastrophic Obama Iran nuclear deal at all costs. Now it is time to tear up that deal once and for all by invoking the snapback mechanism in United Nations Security Council Resolution 2231 and restoring U.N. sanctions against the Ayatollahs."
