WASHINGTON - U.S. Rep. Vern Buchanan, R-FL, made the following statement after attending Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s address to a joint meeting of Congress:   

“I applaud Prime Minister Netanyahu's unwavering resolve in the face of existential threats to the democratic state of Israel.” Buchanan said. “The Prime Minister has reaffirmed and strengthened the special bond between our two great democracies and our shared fight against radical Islam. It is my hope that the Prime Minister’s address will be heard by Secretary of State John Kerry as he negotiates with Iran over that country’s push for a nuclear weapon.  

Buchanan said a nuclear-armed Iran threatens the security of the Middle East, the United States and the world.  “By no means should the United States accept any agreement that leaves the door open to Iran's continued pursuit of a nuclear weapon.  No deal is better than a bad deal."
