British Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg expressed concern about the possibility of an international military conflict over Iran's nuclear program, in a Thursday interview with The House Magazine, The Huffington Post reported.

"Of course I worry that there will be a military conflict and that certain countries might seek to take matters into their own hands," he was cited as saying.

"That's why we have been very much at the forefront of demonstrating to the world that ... there's a big problem - Iran appears to want to illegally or illicitly arm itself with with a nuclear weapon and, secondly, that there are very tough things we can do which are not military steps in order to place pressure on Iran."
