Udall Issues Statement on Iranian Nuclear Plant

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Tom Udall, D-NM, issued the following statement today in response to President Obama, President Sarkozy and Prime Minister Brown's statement on Iran’s secret nuclear fuel plant:

"This latest deception by Iran is further evidence that Tehran cannot be trusted to live up to its duties as a member of the international community. By attempting to conceal the existence of this nuclear manufacturing plant, Iran has risked further isolation and more stringent sanctions. I commend President Obama and our international partners for standing firm in requiring any future diplomatic outreach be met with truthfulness and transparency."
