Iran denies missile test breached nuclear deal, news.com.au 2 Feb 17 *IRAN has confirmed that it had tested a ballistic missile, but denied that was a breach of its 2015 nuclear deal with world powers.
The comments from Iran’s Defense Minister Hossein Dehghan came after the UN Security Council met on Tuesday to discuss the weekend test, which Washington described as “absolutely unacceptable”.
“The action was in line with boosting Iran’s defense power and is not in contradiction with the JCPOA (the nuclear deal) or Resolution 2231,” Mr Dehghan said.
He was referring to a UN Security Council resolution that bans Iran from developing missiles that can carry nuclear warheads.
“This test was in line with our ongoing programs,” Iranian media quoted him as saying.
“We have previously announced that we will execute the programs we have planned in production of defense equipment meant for our national interests and objectives. Nobody can influence our decision.
“We will not allow foreigners to interfere in our defense affairs.”
Iran’s ballistic missile program has been a bone of contention with the West since the nuclear deal took effect in January last year, triggering the lifting of international sanctions.
Iran says its missiles do not breach United Nations resolutions because they are for defense purposes only and are not designed to carry nuclear warheads………
The row comes against a backdrop of already strained relations between Washington and Tehran over US President Donald Trump’s travel ban on citizens from Iran and six other Muslim-majority countries.
Some 220 Iranian politicians signed a motion on Wednesday endorsing the boosting of Iran’s defense capabilities, the Fars news agency reported.
“The Islamic Republic of Iran’s only way to deter the enemy’s aggression is its missile power,” the motion said, calling the program “an unavoidable necessity” for protecting national security.
The European Union, which helped broker the nuclear deal, had appealed to Tehran to refrain from activities such as the missile tests, “which deepen mistrust.”
Visiting French top diplomat Jean-Marc Ayrault said on Tuesday he had made clear to Zarif his disquiet over the missile tests, calling them “contrary to the spirit” of the Security Council resolution.
Britain also said the test was “inconsistent” with UN resolutions, but stopped short of calling it a violation.
But Moscow, which is fighting alongside Tehran’s forces in Syria, leapt to its ally’s defense.
Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov said Iran’s missile test did not breach Resolution 2231 and accused Washington of “heating up the situation.”*Iran denies missile test breached nuclear deal

Fail.

Liberals believe that with President Trump the world does not respect us but let's think about this, when was the last time Iran did a mock engagement against one of our warships? The USS Fireboat is still patrolling that same area. The USS Nitze is still in the area. Why is Iran not harassing those vessels? Could it be that they realize that the feckless wonder known as Obama has left the White House and they could get more than they bargained if they take us on now?
Thanks from coke

What "mock engagement"? Are you referring to when Iran blew up a mock up of a fake Nimitz aircraft carrier. In Nov. 2915?
Or the harassment in Sept. 2016? No matter which, your god trump had NOTHING to do with the Iranians not doing it again, President Obama was still in office.

The UK, Ireland and Scotland want to ban trump from speaking there, I'm sure Australia and Germany will follow. It took President Obama a good part of his first term to win back the respect of the world and it only took the liar trump less than two weeks to tear it down lower than during the bush reign.
