Washington: Backing Israel on its latest accusation on Iran, US said the evidences found by the Israel are new and convincing.

Israel has given access to the US to the files as well; and announced that it will provide the files to other western countries and world forces in order to expose Iran’s ‘dual policy’.

In a statement, the White House said Israel’s information provided “new and compelling details” about Iran’s alleged efforts to develop “missile-deliverable nuclear weapons”.

The US statement said: “These facts are consistent with what the US has long known – Iran had a robust, clandestine nuclear weapons programme that it has tried and failed to hide from the world and from its own people.”
