Trump directly contradicted by US intelligence chief on Iran and North Korea’s nuclear ambitionsA US intelligence chief has completely contradicted Donald Trump’s claims over the nuclear ambitions of both North Korea and Iran. Pyongyang is unlikely to give up its nuclear capabilities, while Tehran is currently not engaging in activities necessary to produce nuclear weapons, national intelligence director Dan Coats concluded in his annual “Worldwide Threat Assessment”. Presenting his conclusions to the Senate Intelligence Committee on Tuesday, Mr Coats said the US faced unique threats from each of the “big four” of China, Russia, Iran and North Korea, including cyber warfare and weapons of mass destruction (WMDs).
