Hagel: US ‘clear-eyed’ on Iranian support of terror

NEW YORK — The United States is testing Iran’s diplomatic intentions but remains “clear-eyed” on Iran’s role as a state-sponsor of terror and exporter of extremism, said US Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel.
“But foreign policy is not a zero-sum game,” he said. “If we can find ways to resolve disputes peacefully, we are wise to explore them.”
Hagel’s comments on Iranian nuclear negotiations came Thursday at the Anti-Defamation League’s centennial conference in New York.
