Statement on Ambassador Haley's Remarks on Iranian Aggression
AIPAC applauds the strong statement today by U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations (U.N.) Nikki Haley on the growing threat of Iran’s destabilizing behavior to the security of America and its allies. Ambassador Haley cited a new U.N. report that showed Iran—despite professions of innocence—has repeatedly violated U.N. Security Council resolutions. Ambassador Haley produced concrete evidence of illicit and dangerous Iranian weapons proliferation, and cited “Iran’s ballistic missile program, its arms exports and its support for terrorists, proxy fighters and dictators.”
Ambassador Haley has again highlighted Iran’s increasing threat to Mideast nations and beyond. We urge the administration, Congress and the international community to implement a comprehensive strategy to confront Iran’s dangerous behavior.
