Pompeo: U.S. likely to leave nuclear agreement

April 29, 2018

New U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said on Friday that President Donald Trump will likely withdraw from the 2015 nuclear deal.

“The President has been clear -- absent a substantial fix, absent overcoming the shortcomings, the flaws of the deal -- he is unlikely to stay in that deal past this May,” CNN quoted Pompeo as telling reporters during a press conference at NATO headquarters in Brussels.

Trump has said he will make a decision on whether to leave the deal by May 12.
