January 31, 2017
Press Release

Today, Congressman Brad Schneider (IL-10), a member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, released the following statement following reports that Iran conducted a ballistic missile test this weekend:

“I am alarmed by reports of Iran’s recent ballistic missile test, at least the fifth since Iran signed the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, and condemn this action as a violation of UN Security Council Resolution 2231. This launch is a belligerent provocation by Iran meant to test the resolve of the international community and its commitment to enforcing the terms of the JCPOA. The United States must work with our allies, including at the United Nations, to ensure Iran feels the bite of a strong international response as a consequence of its intentionally reckless and dangerous actions.”
