Former US secretary of state James Baker said Tuesday that it is not in the United States' or Israel's interest to attack Iran over its nuclear program.

Speaking to Army Radio, Baker said, "I don't think that it would be in the best interest -- certainly not of the United States and perhaps not of Israel" to attack Iran's nuclear facilities.

But at the end of the day, he added, "We cannot allow Iran to acquire a nuclear weapon."
