UN report says Iran's missile tests are inconsistent with Vienna nuclear deal

Saturday, July 9, 2016 | Tag Cloud Tags: , ,

(Worthy News) - The findings posted in a confidential 16-page report did not clearly state whether the Iranian missile tests in March 2016 had directly violated the provisions of the nuclear deal signed in July 2015 in Vienna. UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon stressed, however, that it was up to the UN Security Council to determine what should be done to Iran in response to the tests, which are not covered by the UN Security Council Resolution 2231.

"While it is for the Security Council to interpret its own resolutions, I am concerned that those ballistic missile launches are not consistent with the constructive spirit demonstrated by the signing" of the nuclear deal, Ban's report read.

"I am concerned by the ballistic missile launches conducted by Iran in March 2016."

Under the original terms of the agreement, Tehran had agreed to curb its atomic program after Western powers accused Iran for years of working on developing a nuclear bomb. Iran has always denied those allegations. The deal had led to the lifting of sanctions. [ Source ]
