Sen. Collins: Iran needs to be held accountable

Written by

BANGOR - Senator Susan Collins is sharing her thoughts on the tense situation between the U.S. and Iran.

While she says Iran must be held accountable for its "extremely aggressive behavior" and actions, the republican senator added that President Trump needs to tread carefully.


"The president is right to proceed very cautiously. A miscalculation by either the American side or the Iranian side could lead to an out and out war in the Middle East, and that is something I don't think anyone wants to see happen," said Sen. Collins (R - Maine.)


Collins says the UN Security Council will be holding an emergency session on the matter next week.
