U.S. Secretary of State Nominee Rex Tillerson said on Wednesday he would recommend a "full review" of the nuclear deal with the Iranian regime, Reuters reported.

Speaking in a confirmation hearing before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, Tillerson said: "We need...to examine our ability to clarify whether Iran is complying."

"If confirmed, my recommendation … is to do a full review of that agreement as well as any number of side agreements that I understand are part of that agreement," Tillerson said, noting that President-elect Donald Trump is on the same page.

The review would include the agreement's verification and enforcement mechanisms, he said. Tillerson criticized the agreement in its current form for not comprehensively blocking Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon.

"My understanding is the current agreement, for instance, does not deny them the ability to purchase a nuclear weapon," he said. "It just denies them the ability to develop one."

The agreement should ensure that Iran’s regime cannot enrich uranium, he said.
