Pataki: I Would Not Have Sent Iran Letter

By    |   Sunday, 15 Mar 2015 04:44 PM

Former New York Gov. George Pataki said he doesn't agree with the actions of some of his fellow Republicans who signed an open letter to Iran about ongoing nuclear talks involving the United States and Iran.

"I've always believed that foreign policy, and, in particular, negotiations with foreign states, have to be conducted by the president and his team," Pataki said Sunday on "The Cats Roundtable" on New York's AM 970.

Pataki told host John Catsimatidis he wouldn't want a future Republican president be undermined by a Democratic Senate in a similar way.

"I would not have sent the letter," Pataki said.

Other Republicans have been critical of the letter signed by 47 senators warning Iran that any deal signed by President Barack Obama is not binding without Congressional approval.

Freshman Sen. Tom Cotton, who crafted the letter, and others who signed say that the letter was necessary because Obama is prepared to sign a bad deal that would allow Iran to develop nuclear weapons. They also are critical because Obama is leaving Congress out of the loop in the negotiations.
