Crist, Bilirakis bill seeks to curb illicit Iranian military buildup

Two Bay area congressman, U.S. Rep. Charlie Crist, Democrat of St. Petersburg, and U.S. Rep. Gus Bilirakis, Republican of Palm Harbor, introduced bipartisan legislation prohibiting U.S. military assistance to any country that sells restricted weapons or technology to Iran.

The No Arms Sales to Iran Act aims to discourage others in the international community from arms sales that could undermine ongoing efforts to contain and curb Iran’s agressions.

“Iran’s aggressive actions remain a threat to America, Israel, and the rest of the world. As the top state sponsor of terrorism, Iran’s nefarious pursuit of restricted weapons further destabilizes the region,” said Crist. “Our bill sends a strong message to countries considering arms deals with Iran that supporting state sponsors of terrorism will not be tolerated.”

“Despite the Iran Deal, Iran continues to demonstrate its commitment to tyranny through its continued support and spread of terror in an effort to destabilize the Middle East,” said Bilirakis. “As we work with allies to keep the pressure on Iran, we must ensure that our efforts are not being undermined by other nations and, if so, that they are exposed and held accountable.”
