British Prime Minister Theresa May said on Friday that Britain shares the concerns of the United States regarding Iran's activities in the Middle East and is ready to take further action against Tehran.

During a visit to Berlin, May said that she and German Chancellor Angela Merkel had affirmed their commitment to the Iranian nuclear deal and agreed on the need to implement it fully.

"We agreed that while we continue to work on maintaining the agreement, we also share the United States' concerns about Iran's destabilizing actions in the Middle East, and we are ready to take further appropriate measures to address those problems," May told reporters.

British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson confirmed on Monday as well that London was concerned about Iran's role after anti-aircraft missiles brought down on Saturday an Israeli fighter plane as it returned from bombing Iranian-backed sites in Syria
