Washington, D.C.- Yesterday, U.S. Representative Ted Poe (TX-02) issued the following statement following the passage of H.R. 3364, the bipartisan Countering Adversarial Nations through Sanctions Act.
“Military leaders consistently name North Korea, Iran and Russia as the greatest threats to American security,” said Rep. Poe. “These rogue nations continually destabilize the world with dangerous and aggressive behavior that must be directly countered with clear and consistent U.S. leadership. This week, Congress took action by targeting these bad actors with one of the most comprehensive sanctions packages in history. With the near unanimous passage of the Countering Adversarial Nations Through Sanctions Act, Congress has sent the message to these saber-rattling nations that we will not slip away into the darkness of silence.”
