The goal of the ongoing nuclear negotiations with the Iranian regime should be “to prevent — not delay — a nuclear Iran”, Pennsylvania lawmakers have declared.

House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Ed Royce (R-CA) and Ranking Member Eliot Engel (D-NY) issued the following statement as negotiators attempt to reach a final agreement on Iran’s nuclear program by November 24th.

The Wall Street Journal writes: "With a Monday deadline looming, either success or failure of the talks would have fateful implications for Washington’s ties to the Middle East and for the potential spread of atomic arms in the region.
"What diplomats say is the most likely outcome—an extension of talks—would prolong uncertainty over the conflict between Iran and the West."
