REP. GUTIÉRREZ SUPPORTS IRAN NUCLEAR AGREEMENT AS “A MATTER OF WAR AND PEACE”

July 14, 2015
Press Release

Rep. Gutiérrez: “With the agreement, we are giving peace a chance.”

Washington, DC – Today, Rep. Luis V. Gutiérrez (D-IL) responded to news that the U.S., Iran, and partner nations had reached an agreement to limit Iran’s nuclear ambitions.  Rep. Luis V. Gutiérrez represents the Fourth District of Illinois, is a Member of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, is a Member of the Judiciary Committee and the Subcommittee on Immigration and Border Security, and is the Co-Chair of the Immigration Task Force of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus. 

The following is a statement by Rep. Gutiérrez:

“This is a matter of war and peace.  With the agreement, we are giving peace a chance.  War is almost never the right answer to any question, but it is always an option.  Skeptics and critics need to give this a chance to work because the consequences are so high and the prospects for a peaceful resolution of Iran’s nuclear ambitions are fragile.  If actions by Iran invalidate the agreement and necessitate a different, aggressive, military strategy, there is nothing that prevents that in the future.”
