UK Ambassador to Israel Matthew Gould reassured Israel that Britain fully shares its worries over Iran's nuclear proliferation, speaking at the University of Haifa on Wednesday.

The British government, he said, is also committed to preventing Iran from having nuclear weapons.

"The recent [IAEA] report confirms that we have a reason to worry" about Iran, he added.

"Already today Iran supports international terrorism and we share the concerns of Israel that a nuclear-armed Iran will feel that it can continue supporting international terrorism without any fear of consequences," the British ambassador said.
