talks to Al Jazeera
In this episode of Talk to Jazeera, Al Jazeera's Sami Zeidan talks to General Mark Kimmitt, the assistant US secretary of defence.

With the US military building up its forces once again in the Gulf, Al Jazeera asks if the US intends to attack Iran.

Kimmitt tells Al Jazeera that the US will continue working with its partners in the region and that he is convinced that diplomacy through the UN is the right path to take. He adds, however, that the US is taking no options off the table.

Al Jazeera asks him whether the US would strike Iran if it reaches industrial levels of uranium enrichment and at what point the US would consider an attack on Iran to be necessary?
