Sheila Gewolb, Senior Vice President of the Board of Deputies of British Jews, has expressed concern about Iran’s intention to breach the nuclear agreement.

Sheila said: “We are deeply concerned that the Iranian regime has announced it will breach the limit on its stockpile of enriched uranium, set under a 2015 nuclear deal with world powers. World powers must use every possible measure to prevent the spectre of Iranian nuclear armament. As it stands, Iran already acts as a destabilising influence in the region, taking British civilians hostage, abusing the human rights of its citizens and arming state and non-state actors, such as Syria and Hezbollah, to commit acts of violence against civilians. It would be all the more dangerous with a nuclear weapon. The UK and other world powers must take decisive steps to bring an end to Iran’s military nuclear capabilities and its financing of global terrorism.”
