Iran rejects arbitrary interpretation of resolution 2231

He said that "Russia hasn't embraced Western values of freedom and worldwide cooperation" and added that "Iran has blatantly disregarded U.N. Security Council resolutions".

Mr Trump's administration reinstituted sanctions on Iran although the other countries in the nuclear deal - struck during Barack Obama's second term in the White House - are sticking to it despite renewed U.S. pressure on them to abandon the accord or face trade restrictions.

The United States is calling on the European Union to enact its own set of sanctions targeting Iran following Tehran's test of a missile this past weekend.

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif also defended the missile program in a Twitter post on Tuesday, in which he said the UN Security Council resolution which endorsed the nuclear agreement did not ban Tehran from working on missiles.

In Paris, the French foreign ministry also said the missile test was not in compliance with the United Nations resolution.

"Also, there is no evidence of Iran creating infrastructure to store and service nuclear weapons", he said.

Iran's military has cited 2,000 kilometers as the current missile range, and said USA bases in Afghanistan, the United Arab Emirates and Qatar, as well as US aircraft carriers in the Gulf, were within range.

The United Kingdom and France, who convened a UN Security Council session to discuss reports of ballistic tests in Iran, have failed to present any evidence demonstrating that UN Security Council resolutions were violated, a spokesman for Russia's mission to the UN told TASS. "Our support for JCPOA in no way lessens our concern at Iran's destabilising missile programme and determination that it should cease".

Refuting Iranian claims that its illicit missile tests are defensive in nature, Trump administration Iran envoy Brian Hook vowed tough reprisals for Iran's most recent missile tests, which are among the most provocative in recent memory.

The UNSC may be deadlocked because of the potential Russian veto, thus making it hard for the UN to deal with Iran's defiance.

Iran's missile program serves as an effective defensive and deterrent tool against foreign threats.

Saudi Arabia has already been subjected to hundreds of Iranian-supplied short- and medium-range missiles launched by the Houthi militia from Yemen over the past three years.

The missile, according to the statement from Pompeo, had the capability of carrying multiple warheads and "has a range that allows it to strike parts of Europe and anywhere in the Middle East". The possibility that those missiles and drones could carry nuclear warheads or others weapons of mass destruction (WMDs) should not be ruled out.

Heshmatollah Falahatpisheh made the remark on Tuesday after a meeting with the IRGC Aerospace Force Brigadier General Amir Ali Hajizadeh at the National Security and Foreign Policy Commission of Iranian Parliament.

"There is no legitimate reason why Iran should flout the resolution and why their spokesman should pretend that the resolution doesn't call on them not to develop such missiles", Pierce said. He called that a violation of the 2015 resolution.

The affected states naturally responded to these threats by urging collective action to confront Iranian terrorism and undermine relevant networks. The arms race that Iran has started is putting pressure on the region's resources and diverting funds from development.

Pompeo's address, which was met with polite applause, rejected concerns among many traditional US allies that Trump is undermining the West by withdrawing from climate, free-trade and arms control accords.
