(Worthy News) - Tehran's recent ballistic missile tests did not violate a UN resolution and were not illegal, Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said Tuesday after being questioned on the issue by Australia.

The United Nations Security Council met Monday at the request of the United States to discuss the missile tests that have raised the prospect of new sanctions.

But Zarif said that under Resolution 2231, adopted a few days after Iran struck a landmark nuclear deal with world powers last year, Tehran was within its rights to carry out the tests. [ Source ]
