Pentagon chief says US should 'stay with' Iran nuclear deal

Pentagon chief says US should 'stay with' Iran nuclear deal | 03 Oct 2017 | The US should stay in the Iran nuclear deal if Tehran is found to be "living by the agreement," US Defense Secretary James Mattis said. President Donald Trump has repeatedly threatened to scrap what he has called the "worst deal ever negotiated." "The point I would make is that if we can confirm that Iran is living by the agreement, if we can determine that this is in our best interest, then clearly we should stay with it," Mattis told the Senate Armed Services Committee on Tuesday. "I believe at this point in time, absent indications to the contrary, it is something that the president should consider staying with." Iran is "not in a material breach of the agreement," said General Joseph Dunford, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.
