Manchin urges West Virginians to read Iran Nuclear Deal on his website

WASHINGTON, D.C. – As he carefully considers the Iran nuclear deal, U.S. Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) is encouraging West Virginians to visit his website to read the full text of the Iran nuclear deal for themselves. Since the deal was announced on July 14th, Senator Manchin has been actively engaged with West Virginians, top U.S. officials, U.S. military leaders, world diplomats and foreign policy experts to hear their thoughts and concerns.

“Right now, I am hearing from experts on both sides of the debate as I consider the consequences and weigh the options on the Iran nuclear deal,” Senator Manchin said. “I urge all West Virginians to review the text of the deal, along with a helpful one-page breakdown of the provisions, both of which I have made available on my website.”
