    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) - The United States believes Israel’s recent findings confirm that Tehran has been concealing its nuclear weapons program, the White House said in a statement.

    On Monday, Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in a televised speech said that Israel uncovered information proving Iran violated its commitment to maintaining a peaceful nuclear program.

    "On Israel’s announcement related to Iranian nuclear weapons development… These facts are consistent with what the United States has long known: Iran has a robust, clandestine nuclear weapons program that it has tried and failed to hide from the world and from its own people," the White House said in a Twitter post.

    ​Earlier, EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Federica Mogherini said that the Netanyahu's statement could be assessed only after a thorough analysis. A spokesman for the German Cabinet also said that Berlin would analyse and assess information in Israeli PM's statement, saying that it would be analysed in detail and evaluated.
