Senator Jon Tester today met with Israeli Ambassador to the United States, Ron Dermer, to ask questions regarding the specifics of the Iran nuclear agreement.

“In order to make an informed decision, it’s critical that folks in Congress gather as much input as possible,” Tester said after the meetings.  “Today I got the chance to ask specific questions and hear concerns from the ambassadors.  Their analysis of the agreement and the feedback from folks in Montana will help me cast a well-informed vote to prevent a nuclear Iran.”

On July 14, the United States, China, France, Russia, the United Kingdom, Germany and Iran negotiated an agreement with the goal of preventing Iran from developing a nuclear weapon. Congress is currently in the middle of a 60-day review period.

After reading the entire agreement, Tester posted it on his website for all Montanans to access and encouraged them to submit their thoughts before he makes a final decision.
