Watch: McMaster at the Munich Security Conference

"Now is the time to address serious flaws in the Iran deal," McMaster said at the Munich Security Conference, "and counter Iran's destabilizing activities, including its development and proliferation of missiles and its support of terrorist proxies and militias that fuel destructive conflicts across the greater Middle East."

"What Iran is actually doing is applying the Hezbollah model to the greater Middle East," he added, "in which they want weak governments in power. They want the Arab world to be perpetually weak."

"What’s particularly concerning is that this network of proxies is becoming more and more capable as Iran seeds more and more ... destructive weapons into these networks," McMaster said.
