Diaz-Balart: Iran’s Mullahs Continue to Fund Terror Activities

Press Release

MIAMI – Congressman Mario Diaz-Balart (FL-25) issued the following statement regarding recent terror attacks against American interests in Iraq.  Terror groups funded by the Iranian regime reportedly are responsible for these attacks.

“As we have seen over the last few days, the terrorist state of Iran has funded proxy groups responsible for the recent, vile attacks on an American consulate and embassy in Iraq.   Over the summer, authorities arrested six individuals including one Iranian diplomat for attempting a terrorist attack at a pro-freedom rally in France.  The United States must continue tough sanctions against the murderous mullahs in Iran who fund global terrorism, seek nuclear weapons, and brutally oppress their own people.  I strongly support the President’s reversal of the flawed Iran deal, including his reinstitution of sanctions.  We must continue our efforts to end the Iranian regime’s ability to threaten the United States, destabilize the region, and attack our allies.”
