SHARE Hillary Clinton on Iran: No deal is better than a bad deal

WASHINGTON — Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton says the United States must be “tough” and “clear-eyed” as it conducts nuclear talks with Iran. But she tells the American Jewish Committee that “no deal is better than a bad deal” with Iran.

The potential 2016 Democratic presidential candidate spoke to the American Jewish organization Wednesday as the U.S. and its allies are in talks to reduce Iran’s potential nuclear weapons-making abilities. The talks are being conducted in Vienna ahead of a July 20 target date for a deal.

Clinton says she is “personally skeptical” the Iranians will follow through on a comprehensive agreement but says the U.S. needs to see whether diplomacy can work.

She says no agreement should be accepted that endangers the national security of Israel or the United States.
