"Certainly… Our position is well-known, we share it with all our partners, including with Russia," Elkin said answering a question if Israel continued convincing other parties to the accord to revise the provisions of the JCPOA after the US move.

The politician added that the process launched by Trump would be rather complicated and expressed hope that such process would stop the alleged efforts of Tehran aimed at obtaining nuclear weapons.

On May 1, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced that Israel had obtained 100,000 paper and digital documents, which, according to him, irrefutably proved that Iran's nuclear program had a secret military component, code-named "Project Amad."
