BBC News reports that the outgoing director of the CIA has warned US President-elect Donald Trump that ending the Iran nuclear deal would be “the height of folly“.
John Brennan, who will step down in January after four years leading the CIA, told BBC News:
“I think it would be disastrous … First of all for one administration to tear up an agreement that a previous administration made would be unprecedented.”
He said such a move would risk strengthening hardliners in Iran and risk other states pursuing nuclear programmes in response to a renewed Iranian effort.
In his campaign, Mr Trump threatened to scrap the Iran nuclear deal.
