USCCB committee calls for patience with Iran in nuclear negotiations

January 16, 2015

In a letter to the leaders of three congressional committees, the chairman of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops’ Committee on International Justice and Peace called for patience with Iran so as not to jeopardize dialogue on nuclear weapons.

“Our committee urges Congress not to take any actions that could undermine the negotiation process or make a responsible multi-party agreement more difficult to achieve,” said Bishop Oscar Cantú of Las Cruces. “As negotiations reach a critical stage, we advocate both patience and avoidance of any measures that might jeopardize the prospects for a diplomatic solution that can advance peace in the region.”

    It is reassuring to know that the USCCB committee for national defense and world peace is sharing their expertise on Iran's nuclear program. The people of the U.S. and Israel will sleep better tonight.
