Thomas Kean Jr. on Foreign Policy
KEAN: The US must be steadfast in our efforts to address nuclear proliferation, most importantly in Iran and North Korea. The concerns arising over nuclear proliferation in Iran are justified when we reflect on North Korea which withdrew from the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty and has already declared itself a nuclear state.
MENENDEZ: I've also fought to end Iran's nuclear weapons program through legislation aimed at stopping its development. For years, Iran has deceived the international community and supported terrorist organizations. It's hardly a coincidence that Hezbollah kidnapped Israeli soldiers on the very same day Iran was to answer to the international community- touching off the conflict in Lebanon. As Iran continues its nuclear program-enriching uranium and refusing to dismantle-I support the UN Security Council resolution threatening Iran with international sanctions.
It is William Payne, not Kean, that Sudan experts credit for pushing New Jersey state lawmakers to support a bill directing state pension funds to be divested from companies doing business with Sudan. William Payne's legislative director said Kean was the first state senator to join Payne in calling for divestiture, noting "He was the only one on the Senate side for a long time to speak on the issue."
