Burns, Nicholas. "The Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action." Testimony Before the Committee on Foreign Relations, U.S. Senate, July 29, 2015.
Mr. Chairman, Ranking Member Cardin and members of the committee, thank you for this opportunity to testify on the international agreement to prevent Iran from becoming a nuclear weapons power. This is one of the most urgent and important challenges for our country, for our European allies as well as for Israel and our Arab partners in the Middle East. The United States must do whatever it takes to thwart Iran’s nuclear weapons ambitions and its determination to become the dominant military power in the region.
