Secretary of State Mike Pompeo stated on Saturday that Iran’s authorities had only test-fired that a medium-range missile “that’s capable of carrying multiple warheads.”

The ballistic missile Iran analyzed has the capacity to hit portions of Europe and some other place from the Middle East, ”the secretary explained, he promised will violate a U.N. Security Council resolution that called Iran not to pursue” any action associated with ballistic missiles developed to be capable of delivering atomic weapons, such as launches utilizing such ballistic missile technology”

“We all know these actions,” Pompeo said, “and call on Iran to stop immediately all actions concerning ballistic missiles developed to be capable of producing atomic weapons”

Pompeo reiterated that opinion on Twitter.

On Sunday, a senior Iranian official said the nation’s missile program wasn’t in breach of U.N. resolutions.

“Iran’s missile program is defensive in character… There isn’t any Security Council resolution forbidding the missile program and missile tests by Iran,” state news agency IRNA quoted Foreign Ministry spokesman Bahram Qasemi as stating.

Qasemi didn’t affirm or deny that Iran had completed a brand new missile test.

Iran has repeatedly stated its missile program is purely defensive and refused that its missiles are capable of being tipped with nuclear warheads.

The language of this U.N. Security Council Resolution “calls on” instead of”prohibits” Iran from analyzing its missiles, based on Trita Parsi the president of the National Iranian American Council. The most U.N. resolution that Pompeo mentioned is also the exact atomic deal the Trump government withdrew from before this season, Parsi added.

“We had a working deal and you might not have agreed with the contents of it actually contained this battle,” he explained. “Trump arrived, ripped it up and we are seeing more missile tests, we are seeing escalation and we’re seeing a drift towards war”

Iran agreed to stop the growth of its nuclear weapons program and permit international checks of its own centers under the Iran nuclear bargain, or that the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, the Obama government negotiated in 2015. In exchange, the U.S. and a lot of different countries fulfilled the milestone accomplishment by rolling crippling economic sanctions.

Iran hadn’t analyzed a comparable weapon for over a year, Parsi stated, due to the arrangement, but that changed following the U.S. withdrew from the nuclear thing.

“The Iranians have basically ceased this testing,” Parsi stated,”and Trump is currently escalating matters with sanctions and consequently we’re back into battle.”
