In a statement released following Iranian President Hassan Rouhani's speech at the UN General Assembly, Menendez said that while he welcomes Rouhani's statement urging for a peaceful and diplomatic path on the issue of Iran's nuclear program, "words must be followed by action in the form of a credible and verifiable agreement to terminate Iran’s nuclear weapons program.”
