US Ambassador to the UN stated that she expects the US to remain in the Iran nuclear deal.

“I think right now you are going to see us stay in the deal, because what our hope is that we can improve the situation, and that's the goal," Haley told NBC host Chuck Todd on 'Meet the Press' Sunday.

"What we hope is that we can improve the situation," she added. "And that's the goal. So I think right now, we're in the deal to see how we can make it better. And that's the goal. It's not that we're getting out of the deal. We're just trying to make the situation better so that the American people feel safer."

"What we're trying to say is, 'Look, the agreement was an incentive. The agreement was for you to stop doing certain things. "You haven't stopped doing certain things. So what do we do to make Iran more accountable so that they do?

When asked how North Korea would react if the US pulled out of the Iran nuclear deal, Haley said “the whole reason we are looking at this Iran agreement is because of North Korea."

"What we're saying now with Iran is don't let it become the next North Korea," she added.

She said that the US and the international community must hold Iran accountable for all of its violations, even those unrelated to its nuclear program. "We have to hold them accountable. They can't be continuing to support terrorism around the world like we are seeing they do. They can't continue to test ballistic missiles, which will lead to a nuclear Iran. They can't continue to do arms smuggling."
