Kerry: US and Iran Disagree on Definition of Terrorism

During Tuesday’s House Foreign Affairs Committee hearing on the Iran nuclear agreement, Rep. Alan Grayson (D., Fla.) asked Secretary of State John Kerry if the implementation of the deal would increase Iran’s support for terrorism.

Kerry said that the United States had no way to know that if the deal is implemented whether Iran would continue to support terrorism because of the difficulty of defining terrorism itself.

Iran is a leader in the state sponsorship of terrorism and the deal includes a transfer of $140 billion.

“They [Iran] are committed to certain things that we interpret as terrorism, they don’t, and we’re going to continue to conflict on those issues,” Kerry said.
