ASPEN, Colorado— Iran will continue to pursue nuclear weapons, even if sanctions against the country are increased, said US Army chief Adm. Mike Mullen on Monday.

Speaking at the Aspen Security Forum, the US chairman of the joint chiefs of staff said it would be "incredibly dangerous" for Iran to achieve nuclear weapons, and that there's "no reason to trust" Iran's assurances that it is only pursuing a peaceful nuclear program.

He added that a military strike against Iran would be "incredibly destabilizing" to the region, and that he believes US ally Israel understands that.
