The Prime Minister's office released a statement on Saturday night as world powers relieved sanctions on Iran after international monitors concluded the first phase of their landmark nuclear deal complete.

"Even after the signing of the nuclear deal Iran has not abandoned it's ambition to acquire nuclear weapons and continues to work to destabilize the Middle East and spread terrorism around the world in violation of international obligations," read the statement.

"Israel will continue to monitor the implementation of the agreement and will warn about any breach."

Saturday marked the formal commencement of the accord, or "Implementation Day."
