WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Senator Rick Scott released the below statement on China’s $400 billion investment in Iran amid Iran’s aggression against the U.S. and our allies.

 

Senator Rick Scott said, “Iran’s continued acts of aggression against the United States and our allies puts our national security and the stability of world markets at risk. Instead of denouncing these attacks, China is choosing to pour hundreds of billions into Iran’s economy. China is proving once again that they will do anything – including prop up dangerous regimes – to advance its mission to become the dominant world power. The United States and the international community must see China for what it is: an adversary. I’m glad the Trump Administration is taking a stand against China, but we can’t turn a blind eye to this. We can’t stop fighting until America’s economic and political future is secure from the threat of Chinese influence.”
