Trump administration conducts interagency review of Iranian nuclear program
Last week, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson announced that the U.S. would conduct a “comprehensive review” of it policy toward Iran. The interagency review will assess whether sanctions suspensions related to the deal are vital to U.S. security interests.
Tillerson noted that while Iran is in compliance with the 2015 nuclear deal, the U.S. may break from the deal due to Iran’s continued support of terrorism. According to Tillerson, “an unchecked Iran has the potential to follow the same path as North Korea and take the world along with it.”
