WASHINGTON, DC – U.S. House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer (D-MD) said Monday night at the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) conference that while nuclear talks with Iran continue without any results, Iran’s leaders “must understand that these talks cannot go on indefinitely.”

“The day will come when diplomacy ends and Iran’s leaders will ultimately decide whether it was because they have willingly dismantled their nuclear weapons program, or whether they have compelled the free world to do it for them,” Hoyer said.

Hoyer said the U.S. and Israel must speak with “unambiguous” language on Iran that does not “leave any uncertainty” in the minds of countries who consider the U.S. and Israel common foes.

“Nowhere must we be more united and vigilant than when facing the threat posed to all of us by Iran,” he said.
