Martin Dempsey, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs, says “it’s to prudent at this point” to attack Iran, adding, “a strike at this time would be destabilizing.”

But in a comment likely to fuel speculation about Israel’s military plans, he added: “I wouldn’t suggest we’ve persuaded them that our view is the correct view.” The two countries were having a “candid, collaborative conversation” which was continuing, he said.

His concerns were echoed by William Hague, the British foreign secretary, who said it was “not a wise thing at this moment” for Israel to launch military action against Iran.
