J Street welcomes deal, urges Congress to support it

US Jewish Israel advocacy group J Street says in a statement that it welcomes the Iran deal and will lobby Congress to ratify it.

“J Street welcomes news of the agreement struck today by the United States and its international partners with Iran,” a statement reads.

“Following our own review of the agreement, we expect to call on Congress to support the deal as the best—if not only—means of ensuring that Iran does not develop nuclear weapons,” it continues, adding that it “congratulates” President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry for their patience and resolve in signing the agreement.
