U.S. Senator Jim Risch (R-Idaho), ranking member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, today released the following statement ahead of next week’s International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Board of Governors meeting:

“The IAEA Board of Governors should censure Iran for its failure to engage with the IAEA’s investigation and for obstructing its monitoring activities. Iran’s recent actions are not consistent with its claims to have a peaceful nuclear program, and instead indicate it has something to hide from the international community. The Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons is under increasing strain around the globe. For the sake of the global nonproliferation regime, Iran cannot be permitted to defy the IAEA with impunity.”
