Sen. Wicker: No Regrets on Iran Letter

By    |   Sunday, 15 Mar 2015 01:15 PM

Mississippi Sen. Roger Wicker told "Meet the Press" on Sunday he has no regrets for signing an open letter to the leadership of Iran about the current nuclear negotiations the White House is engaged in.

"I don't have any regrets at all. I stand by the letter," Wicker said. He and 46 other Republicans have been criticized for interfering with the negotiating process, and some Republicans who signed have reportedly said they were unhappy at how there was no chance to discuss the letter before it was signed.

But Wicker said the focus should be on the substance of the issue rather than the process of how the letter was written.

"The president's own northern command admiral just last week said they are not abiding by the international inspection regime," Wicker said. "And they're developing new intercontinental ballistic missiles. I think the substance should be that this is a country that we're negotiating with, that frankly, our president and our secretary of state feel pretty comfortable with, and I don't have much confidence that any agreement that they make they will abide by."

The GOP letter outlined to the Iranian leadership that no deal signed by the administration on their nuclear program is valid unless approved by the Senate, and could therefore be overturned by the next president.
