He added that the test was "proof of Iran's ambition to become a world power in order to threaten the countries of the Middle East and democratic states around the world".
Video of the test launch aired on Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting (IRIB) on Friday. The time and location of the test were not mentioned in the report. In a Tweet, U.S. President Donald Trump used the occasion to renew his criticism against the nuclear deal.
But it also has said that Iran's missile program violates the spirit of the nuclear agreement. "Anybody who says we [could] get the perfect deal with those kinds of partners is just dreaming".
"North Korea is getting £2bn a year from Iran". Rohingya have faced decades of persecution and discrimination at the hands of the army and extremist Buddhists in the South East Asian country.
The timing doesn't seem like a coincidence. The new sanctions are a clear indicator that Trump wants to isolate Iran without sufficient cause, and leaving the nuclear deal will further weaken U.S. diplomatic reputation internationally. Press TV reported the missile is "capable of carrying multiple warheads" but noted Iran's insistence that its missiles were designed for "defense purposes" and not nuclear capabilities.
Iran says it has no such plans.
Iran has previously shown off parts of the S-300 system. It would make more sense to negotiate to extend the deal. He continued that we cannot "enforce the agreement even if we detect unambiguous violation because enforcement depends on the U.N. Security Council".
Envoys from the European Union, Germany, France and Britain laid out their arguments, returning frequently to their central point that the deal is working and Iran is complying with the agreement reached in July 2015 and implemented in January 2016.
As for foreign influences, the Israel lobby's five points on the deal show where they stand despite the fact that they are not a signatory to the NPT.
"But Kim Jong-Un and the Iranians have never seen anyone talk back to them in these terms". If there's anything worse than a regime full of bad dudes, it's a regime full of bad dudes that has an atomic arsenal.
"Imagine what would happen if Iran would obtain nuclear weapons, something which it strives to do?" he posed. John McCain's decision not to support the GOP health care bill, NBA star Stephen Curry and an event at the White House, Trump's support of Sen. As for pursuing a better deal, why would Iran ever sign another agreement with us?
The Trump administration has called the omission of ballistic missiles a central flaw of the agreement, which Trump may try to revisit - or scrap altogether, as he has threatened in the past.
