The U.S. also argued the test was a violation of UN resolution 2231, passed in 2015, which bans Iran from “any activity related to ballistic missiles designed to be capable of delivering nuclear weapons, including launches using such ballistic missile technology.”
“The United States has repeatedly warned the world about Iran’s deliberate efforts to destabilize the Middle East and defy international norms,” U.S.
“The international community cannot keep turning a blind eye every time Iran blatantly ignores Security Council resolutions.”
“As we have been warning for some time, Iran’s missile testing and missile proliferation is growing.
“We condemn these activities, and call upon Iran to cease immediately all activities related to ballistic missiles designed to be capable of delivering nuclear weapons.”
