How any Western leader could not be persuaded into believing that Iran is NOT in compliance, and the deal is rotten through and through, has to be in the Iranians’ pockets…
US says Iran test-fired a ballistic missile
Secretary of State Pompeo says Iran fired a missile capable of carrying multiple warheads in violation of UN resolution.
The Trump administration on Saturday accused Iran of test-firing a medium-range ballistic missile in violation of a UN Security Council resolution, Fox News reports.
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said in a statement that Iran had fired the missile, capable of carrying multiple warheads, and that the test was in violation of UN Security Council resolution 2231 — which calls on Iran to refrain from “any activity related to ballistic missiles designed to be capable of delivering nuclear weapons, including launches using such ballistic missile technology.”
The missile reportedly has the capability to strike parts of Europe and the Middle East, according to Fox News.
“As we have been warning for some time, Iran’s missile testing and missile proliferation is growing,” Pompeo said in a statement.
“We are accumulating risk of escalation in the region if we fail to restore deterrence. 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,” he added.
