WASHINGTON, DC—Representative Eliot L. Engel, the leading Democrat on the House Committee on Foreign Affairs, today made the following statement regarding Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s address before a Joint Meeting of the Congress:

“Prime Minister Netanyahu’s speech showed that there remain serious and urgent concerns about the nuclear negotiations with Iran. These are not new—and many of them are shared by Republicans and Democrats, including officials in the Obama Administration. Together, we must work to curb Iran’s nuclear program and prevent them from accessing any pathway to a bomb. I expect that Democrats and Republicans will move forward together in the interest of our national security and strengthening the U.S.-Israel relationship.”
