U.S. Senator Bob Menendez, senior member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, will deliver “a major address” on the Iran nuclear agreement on Tuesday, August 18, at Seton Hall University in South Orange.
Menendez will be on campus to announce his decision regarding the upcoming September vote on a resolution of disapproval.
Earlier this month, The Los Angeles Times called Menendez “a safe bet to vote against the deal.”
The event will be available via livestream at menendez.senate.gov.
Per the release from Menendez’s office:
For more than two decades, as a member of the House Foreign Affairs and Senate Foreign Relations Committees, Menendez has followed and studied Iran’s nuclear ambition. Leading up to Tuesday’s address, Menendez has participated in a dozen hearings on the negotiations, both classified and public, has reviewed and analyzed all documents related to the agreement, including testimony from members of the Administration, experts and others, and has met with many individuals, organizations and advocates both in support and against the deal.
Menendez will be delivering the address at 1 p.m. at the Seton Hall School of Diplomacy and International Relations.
