Over 100 National Security Experts Urge Trump to Keep Iran Nuke Deal

More than 100 national security experts have issued a statement calling on President Donald Trump to "maintain the U.S. commitment to the Iran nuclear deal," CNN reports.

The group, which calls itself the National Coalition to Prevent an Iranian Nuclear Weapon, includes almost 50 retired military officers and over 30 former ambassadors, along with former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, former Secretary of Defense William Perry, and former Director of the National Security Agency and the Central Intelligence Agency Michael Hayden.

"President Trump should maintain the U.S. commitment to the Iran nuclear deal. Doing so will bring substantial benefits and strengthen America's hand in dealing with North Korea, as well as Iran, and help maintain the reliability of America's word and influence as a world leader. Ditching it would serve no national security purpose."

The U.S. is currently negotiating the deal with allies to implement changes Trump has demanded, despite also preparing to abandon the agreement altogether.

"U.S. relations with major European allies, who all oppose US withdrawal, would be preserved for advancing U.S. national security interests beyond the nuclear deal," the statement read. "The U.S. will build credibility and retain influence with its negotiating partners to ensure strict implementation with the agreement, be able to lead efforts to strengthen it, or garner strong support for imposing additional sanctions if necessary."
