The Algemeiner/Reuters: US Won’t Stand Idly by if Iran Gets ‘Too Close’ to Nuclear Weapon: Envoy 

The United States will not stand idly by if Iran gets too close to a nuclear weapon, US Special Envoy for Iran Rob Malley said in interview excerpts released on Wednesday ahead of next week’s resumption of talks on reviving a 2015 nuclear deal. 

 “If they start getting too close, too close for comfort, then of course we will not be prepared to sit idly by,” he told National Public Radio in an interview, according to excerpts released by the US broadcaster. The excerpts did not address what he meant by “too close” nor US options in that case.
