Iran wants to expand missile range despite USA opposition

Trump is shaping new ‘liberal’ order to block Russia China Iran says Pompeo

Pompeo said the test violated UN Security Council Resolution 2231, however, which endorsed the 2015 nuclear deal signed by several world powers and Iran.

The UK continues firmly to support the historic nuclear deal with Iran.

Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Bahram Qasemi also said Iranian missiles were purely defensive and added, "There is no Security Council resolution prohibiting missile program and missile tests by Iran".

Iran's Foreign Ministry said their defence programme is none of the United States' business while Washington is urging the UN Security Council to condemn the Islamic Republic for a "dangerous" violation of a UN resolution with another ballistic missile test. The comparatively weak language has led to some differences of interpretation, and these were highlighted on Tuesday when the Security Council held a closed-door meeting at the request of the French and British governments, both of which have previously expressed concern over the Iranian ballistic missile program and the regime's destabilizing influence over the broader region.

"Iran's missile programme is defensive in nature".

There will be signage posted to direct anyone wanting a free flu shot to the flu clinic entrance and parking. A time set aside to encourage those who have not gotten the flu shot to get vaccinated .


"It is a grave and escalating threat, and nations around the world, not just Europe, need to do everything they can to be targeting Iran's missile program", Hook said. "Three days later, they test launched another medium range ballistic missile".

Pompeo said the United States was acting correctly.

British Ambassador Karen Pierce told reporters that the missile test is "inconsistent" with the resolution, but the United Kingdom wants to know "exactly what happened and then we will reach a judgment about how we want to characterize it".

"Under President Trump, we are not abandoning global leadership or our friends in the worldwide system".

The president withdrew the US from the 2015 nuclear deal with Tehran that lifted crippling economic sanctions in exchange for a freeze on Iran's atomic weapons program. "Iran is on the wrong track and our campaign of maximum economic pressure is created to starve the regime of the revenue it needs to test missiles and proliferate missiles, support terrorism, conduct cyber attacks, [and] conduct acts of maritime aggression".

She added, "The worldwide community can not keep turning a blind eye every time Iran blatantly ignores Security Council resolutions".

US President Donald Trump announced in May that the US was withdrawing from the nuclear agreement describing it as "the worst deal ever", announcing a series of tough sanctions on the country in the following months. "Provocative, threatening and inconsistent with UNSCR 2231".

"It was a mistake to exclude missiles from the Iran nuclear deal and is one of the principle reasons the United States left it", Hook said, directly criticizing the previous administration for caving to Iran's demands that its advanced missile program not be covered under the deal. Those launches came a week after an assault by militants on an Iranian military parade in the southern city of Ahvaz killed 25 people.

"Furthermore, this ballistic missile activity is destabilising and increases regional tensions", it added.
