(Worthy News) - The United Nations Security Council on Tuesday is set to hold closed door consultations on Iran’s test over the weekend of a medium-range ballistic missile, according to media report.

UNSC members France and Great Britain requested the meeting, which will be held in New York.

Iran said on Sunday it would continue missile tests to build up its defenses and denied this was in breach of UN resolutions.

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Saturday condemned what he called Iran's testing of a medium-range ballistic missile in violation of the 2015 international agreement on the Iranian nuclear program, from which Washington has withdrawn. [ Source: Jerusalem Post (Read More...) ]
