I fully support diplomatic efforts to curtail Iran's nuclear programs, especially if it eliminates their efforts to produce an atomic bomb ("The nuclear deal with Iran," Nov. 25). However, I doubt that we can trust the word of Iran on this issue.

What seems to be missing here is an additional effort to stop Iran from funding and helping terrorist groups. I think that changing their policy of wishing harm on Israel and other countries should be part of any agreement. This encouragement of terrorists is just as harmful to world peace. Sanctions should be kept until both issues are dealt with.
