West provides no evidence that Iran violated United Nations resolution - Russian diplomat

Russia, he said, is violating key arms control treaties and undermining the sovereignty of its neighbors, while Iran is flouting U.N. Security Council resolutions.

The nuclear deal provides for a lifting of sanctions against Iran in return for curbs on its nuclear activities.

Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Bahram Qasemi also said Iranian missiles were purely defensive and added, "There is no Security Council resolution prohibiting missile program and missile tests by Iran".

In response to that, Iranian Armed Forces Spokesman Brigadier General Abolfazl Shekarchi said that the country would continue missile tests to improve its defense capabilities.

Last week, the Iranian Foreign Ministry refuted Pompeo's claim that the Iranian missile program allegedly violated the United Nations resolution.

France's U.N. Ambassador Francois Delattre said his government has condemned the December 1 launch as "inconsistent" with the 2015 resolution and has called on Iran to immediately halt all activity related to ballistic missiles "designed to be able to carry nuclear weapons, including launches using ballistic missile technology".

That, according to Pompeo violates UN Security Council Resolution 2231 which calls on Iran not to undertake any activity related to "ballistic missiles created to be capable of delivering nuclear weapons" as part of endorsing a nuclear deal with Tehran.

The Trump administration has been accused by friends and foes alike of attacking the worldwide order with its unilateral approach to many issues. Accordingly the United Kingdom and France vociferated a closed-door convention of the Security Council to debate the issue.

Nikki Haley, the outgoing United States ambassador to the United Nations, insisted it had been conducted by Tehran "in defiance" of resolution 2231, describing the test as "dangerous and concerning, but not surprising". "The worldwide community can not keep turning a blind eye every time Iran blatantly ignores Security Council resolutions".

Resolution 2231 was the Security Council's consecration of the 2015 Iran nuclear deal, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action which the Trump administration removed the USA from in May.

Some supporters of the JCPOA have expressed concern that further pressures on the Iranian regime could prompt it to follow the USA in withdrawing from the deal, which imposes limited restrictions on Iran's nuclear activity in exchange for sanctions relief. "France is concerned about Iran's mid-range ballistic missile test last Saturday".

British Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt called the test "provocative, threatening and inconsistent" with the United Nations resolution.

"We would like to see the European Union move sanctions that target Iran's missile programme", Hook told reporters aboard Pompeo's plane as he travelled to Brussels for a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation meeting. It's all coming from Iran.

She called Iran's actions "inconsistent" with the resolution and "part and parcel of Iran's destabilizing activity in the region".

"Furthermore, this ballistic missile activity is destabilising and increases regional tensions", it added.
