WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The Republican chairman of the U.S. House of Representatives Foreign Affairs committee said on Wednesday the international nuclear deal with Iran should be strictly enforced, but did not call for an end to the agreement, saying Washington should work with allies.

"As flawed as the deal is, I believe we must now enforce the hell out of it," Representative Ed Royce said at a hearing on Iran.
