Israel's former Prime Minister Ehud Barak is cautious about the U.S. withdrawal of the Iran deal.

"I thought it was a bad deal but once President Obama signed it, it became part of reality," Barak said in an interview with TheStreet. "Once President [Trump] decided to pull out, that's part of reality."

President Trump announced the U.S. exit from the deal on Tuesday, which was signed in 2015 by former President Obama.

Ehud Barak was Prime Minister from 1999 to 2001 and is author of the new book My Country, My Life: Fighting for Israel, Searching for Peace.
