The U-S Secretary of Defense says Washington has no plans to scale back its military presence in the Persian Gulf region despite a diplomatic opening with Iran. Chuck Hagel made the comment at a U-S base in Bahrain. The Pentagon chief is visiting several Arab states in the region. The tour is part of an effort by the White House to soothe the perceived concerns of U-S allies over the deal reached between Iran and the P5+1 on November 24th. The United States has an active presence in the region from Oman and the U-A-E to Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Qatar and Kuwait.
