March 3, 2015
Press Release

Washington - Today, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu addressed a joint session of Congress.  Congresswoman Betty McCollum (D-MN) issued the following statement after his address:

“Today from the floor of the United States House of Representatives the world heard the Israeli prime minister reject diplomacy and flagrantly undermine U.S. diplomatic efforts to the cheers of Congress.  It was more campaign rally than serious policy speech which was the prime minister’s goal to begin with. The P5+1 negotiations with Iran are critical to the national security of the United States and I fully support the Obama administration’s diplomatic efforts to deny Iran the ability to acquire a nuclear weapon.”
