Alex Younger met on Monday with Mossad head Yossi Cohen and other Israeli security leaders, according to Channel 13 news.

Israel’s evaluation is that Tehran is “making preparations” within the specifications of the 2015 deal and is “getting ready,” but has yet to display the weapon, according to the TV report.

The report said that Iran recently renewed its production of centrifuges “and is gearing up for the renewal of uranium enrichment” in accordance with the nuclear agreement that the United Kingdom supports.

“Timely and proactive cooperation by Iran in providing such access facilitates implementation of the Additional Protocol and enhances confidence,” said the report, referencing the protocol specifying precautions and verification tools.
