The prospect of war with Iran is frightening. So is the prospect of a nuclear-armed Iran. That’s why I was so encouraged that the United States was among the world powers taking part in diplomatic talks with Iran on April 13 and 14. Diplomacy is the single most effective way to avert those two bad outcomes.

With continued talks scheduled in May, I encourage our members of Congress to support diplomacy with Iran, not pass new legislation that could sabotage it. I hope my representative, David Schweikert, will cosponsor H.R. 4173, which calls for robust, sustained and comprehensive diplomacy with Iran. And I hope my senators, Jon Kyl and John McCain, will oppose S.Res. 380, which pressures the administration to abandon diplomacy and push toward war.

Diplomacy is the best way forward. Let’s give it a chance.
