Board of Deputies expresses deep concern at Iran’s intention to breach nuclear agreement
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.”
