Defense Secretary Jim Mattis Thursday emphasized the value of certain aspects of the Iran nuclear agreement, even as President Donald Trump considering pulling out of the 2015 deal, which he has attacked repeatedly and this week called "insane".Without explicitly giving his opinion about whether the United States should stick with the agreement, Mattis said that after reading the full text of the deal three times, he was struck by provisions that allow for international verification of Iran's compliance. After meeting with Trump at the White House this week, French President Emmanuel Macron made clear that France would not follow the U.S. lead if Trump decides to withdraw from the agreement.Mattis in the past has said he believes the agreement is flawed but that the U.S. should stick with it.
