WASHINGTON, D.C. - U.S. Sens. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), members of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, today issued the following statement in response to the reports that the administration will once again renew the civil nuclear waivers allowing Iran to build up areas of its nuclear program:

"This is disappointing and another lost opportunity to tear up the catastrophic Obama-Iran nuclear deal once and for all. President Trump should immediately order his administration to stop issuing civil nuclear waivers. These waivers allow Iran to build up its nuclear program, including at their Fordow nuclear bunker, which they dug out of the side of a mountain to build nuclear weapons. Iran is now openly violating the nuclear deal and stockpiling dangerous nuclear material. There is no justification for letting them continue to build up their program. We intend to work with our Congressional colleagues to advance legislation to reverse this misguided decision."
