Sen. David Perdue: Welcome to the 2018 International Convention for a Free Iran
Sen. David Perdue, Georgia Republican:
Welcome to the 2018 International Convention for a Free Iran. You represent Iranian American communities across the entire country.
For years, you have worked to expose the Iranian regime’s systemic human rights violations. This year, Iranians have taken to the streets to protest their government on several occasions, including this week. Even as the regime tries to stifle their voices, you have relentlessly supported freedom for the people of Iran.
The Iranian American community of Georgia has been a major part of that effort. Your commitment, hard work and support of this cause have not gone unnoticed.
My message to you today is simply I hear you and I appreciate so much all your efforts. Having served in the United States Foreign Relations Committee and now in the Armed Services Committee, I am committed to doing all I can to advance and defend basic freedoms in human rights for Iranians and others around the world. You have been a crucial part of this effort, and I know you will continue to be in the future. Again, thank you for all you do.
• Sen. Perdue is Chairman of the Senate Agriculture, Nutrition, and Forestry subcommittee on Nutrition, Agricultural Research, and Specialty Crops, and serves on the Senate Armed Services Committee.
