WASHINGTON, March 1 (UPI) — U.S. officials think Iran has sufficient material to produce a nuclear weapon, Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Mike Mullen said Sunday.
“We think they do, quite frankly,” the U.S. Navy admiral said on CNN. “Iran having a nuclear weapon, I believe, for a long time, is a very, very bad outcome for the region and for the world.”
Mullen said the United States is watching North Korea closely, as well, but he and Defense Secretary Robert Gates have not made a recommendation yet on what to do about North Korea’s nuclear weapon potential.
