Royce Supports Iran Threat Reduction Act
January 09, 2012
Rep. Ed Royce (R-CA), Chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on Terrorism, Nonproliferation, and Trade, issued the following statement in support of H.R. 1905, the Iran Threat Reduction Act. Royce is an original cosponsor of the legislation, which is expected to pass the House overwhelmingly.
"Last week, Vice President Biden boasted that sanctions on Iran have
‘caused significant discussion internally’ in Tehran. That’s comforting
rhetoric, but the ominous reality is that Iran’s nuclear program is more
advanced, more capable and closer than ever to achieving nuclear
weapons. The only discussion among the mullahs seems to be – ‘how fast
do we move forward?’" said Royce in comments on the House floor.
