Press Release

WASHINGTON – Rep. Keith Ellison applauded the P5+1 negotiators after they reached a final agreement to end Iran’s nuclear weapons program.

“The historic agreement reached today proves the power of engagement over isolation — we can choose peace over war. The world is safer thanks to the patient diplomacy and determination of President Obama, Secretary Kerry, and our P5+1 negotiating partners. In the coming weeks, the focus will be on the U.S. Congress to see if Republicans take this deal away from the world. We will stop those who want to push us closer to war.”
