Perry For President - Statement by Gov. Perry on Russian-Iranian Relations

Gov. Rick Perry today issued the following statement on reports of economic and military relations between Russia and Iran:

“It’s irresponsible for President Putin to deliver an anti-missile system to Tehran. It’s premature for Russia or any nation to ease sanctions unless and until there’s a deal that verifiably will stop Tehran from developing a nuclear weapon. The stability of the Middle East and the world depends on American leadership in these negotiations, and the Obama Administration should hold the line to protect American interests, and the interests of our closest ally in the Middle East, Israel.”
