British intelligence MI6’s chief Alex Younger made a secret visit to Israel last week to discuss possible Iranian violations of the 2015 nuclear deal, The Jerusalem Post reported.

Younger met with Mossad director Yossi Cohen in Israel to coordinate intelligence efforts over concerns that Iran may be gearing up to race toward developing a nuclear weapon, it said.

The meeting took place at the beginning of last week, and signaled a new level of seriousness in Western intelligence concerns regarding Iran, it added.

Although Tel Aviv has been warning the world that Tehran would find ways to circumvent the 2015 nuclear deal, the UK and other EU countries have continued to support the agreement even actively opposing new US sanctions imposed in August and November after President Donald Trump’s decision to withdraw from the deal, said the report.
