Deputy Defense Secretary Robert Work has said the Defense Department has received “superb” support from the Intelligence Community as DoD works to manage its intelligence resources amid security threats, DoD News reported Thursday.

Terri Moon Cronk writes Work made the remarks Thursday before members of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence in Washington.

He cited the challenges faced by the Pentagon, such as the Islamic State militant organization, North Korea’s nuclear weapons and ballistic missile program, China’s operations in the South and East China seas, Russia’s activities in Eastern Europe and Iran’s nuclear threat, the report said.

National Intelligence Director James Clapper and Marcel Lettre, defense undersecretary for intelligence, also testified before the House panel, according to the report.
