Vice President Mike Pence and German Chancellor Angela Merkel voiced differing opinions on how to approach the Iran nuclear deal when they both spoke at the Munich Security Conference on Saturday. Pence criticized European leaders for remaining in the deal, arguing "the Iranian regime openly advocates another Holocaust and it seeks the means to achieve it." Merkel defended the agreement, describing it as an "anchor" that should be used to pressure Iran in other areas. The chancellor expressed concern over Europe's split with the U.S. on the matter.
