Washington D.C. – House Foreign Affairs Lead Republican Michael McCaul (R-TX) released the following statement in response to the Administration’s decision to end waivers for countries to import Iranian oil.

Lead Republican McCaul: “I fully support the Administration’s decision to eliminate waivers on oil imports as part of the United States’ maximum pressure campaign against the world’s leading state sponsor of terror. The Iranian regime, responsible for the deaths of over 600 U.S. troops, continues to wreak havoc in the Middle East, threatening U.S. interests and allies. By reducing Tehran’s financial resources, this policy will further deprive the regime of the cash it uses to fuel its destabilizing activities.”
