US Congressmen Eric Cantor (R-VA) and Steney Hoyer (D-MD) addressed the AIPAC 2014 conference Monday and declared that any final agreement with Iran must dismantle its nuclear infrastructure.

"This dismantlement must include enrichment and reprocessing facilities, such that Iran is prevented from pursuing both the uranium and plutonium pathways to a bomb," they said in a joint speech.

The agreement "should also require Iran to come completely clean on its past and present nuclear-related activities, and subject Iran to intrusive verification and monitoring, to ensure compliance,” they insisted.
