Republican presidential candidate Marco Rubio said Tuesday that Iran's capture of 10 American sailors in the Persian Gulf was "provocative, absolutely."

"We'll find out soon enough if they are not immediately released, we'll know that something else is at play," the Florida senator, who sits on the Senate Intelligence Committee, told Bret Baier on Fox News. "Iran is testing the administration's boundaries."

Rubio linked Tehran's move to the nuclear arms agreement, which could be implemented as early as this week, and pledged to revoke it should he be elected to the White House this year.

"You're only seeing this accelerate since the deal was signed with Iran," he told Baier. "They'll use that money to build up their conventional capability, including the Navy to continue to build their long-range missiles, to sponsor terrorism.

"You're only going to see a continued pattern of provocation, as long as a weak president like Barack Obama is in the White House."
