Tehran Will Never Make Nuclear-Capable Missiles - Iranian Foreign Ministry

Iran becomes world missile power despite sanctions: Defence Minister

"We have been warning the world for some time that we are accumulating risk of a regional conflict if we do not deter Iran's missile testing and proliferation", he said.

"No UN Security Council resolution has banned Iran's missile program or missile tests", Qassemi said.

On Saturday, Pompeo said Iran had tested a medium-range ballistic missile in violation of a United Nations resolution, while Iran said its missile program was purely defensive in nature and exclusively for the defense of the country.

In this sense, Saturday's launch was in tension with United Nations Security Council 2231, which oversaw the implementation of the 2015 Iran nuclear deal and separately "called upon" the Islamic Republic to avoid work on all weapons that are created to be capable of carrying a nuclear payload.

The remarks from Paris and London will be seen by the United States government as the first sign that its key European partners may yet be persuaded to view Iran's broader behaviour as so risky that their support for the 2015 Iran nuclear deal can no longer be justified.

France, Germany and Britain sent a letter to council, which was circulated Tuesday, saying Iran's launches of Zolfaqar and Qiam short-range ballistic missiles on September 30 and October 1 "are inherently capable of delivering nuclear weapons".

France "calls on Iran to immediately cease all activity linked to ballistic missiles conceived to carry nuclear weapons, including all launches using ballistic missile technology", it said.

"One of our most important programs is increasing the range of missiles and ammunition", said the head of the Iranian air force, Brigadier General Aziz Nasirzadeh, according to the semi-official Fars news agency. "This is outside the framework of (nuclear) negotiations and part of our national security, for which we will not ask any country's permission", Mr. Shekarchi said.

However, diplomats said they were now trying to limit the fallout of the decision by staggering the expected US withdrawal into next year and first formally accusing Russian Federation of breaking the INF agreement, which rid Europe of land-based nuclear missiles.

France and Britain maintain that missile launches are inconsistent with the UN resolution that endorsed the 2015 Iran nuclear deal while the United States has taken a harder stance and maintains it is an outright violation.

Those US sanctions have targeted Iran's critical oil sector, as well as several major Iranian banks and other industries. "I believe that we are making progress toward getting a proposal tabled in Brussels that would designate the individuals and the entities that are facilitating Iran's missile program".

"This is a grave and escalating threat and we need to restore deterrents against Iran's missile programme".

However, diplomacy with Iran is highly sensitive for the European Union because Brussels considers the 2015 pact to stop Tehran from developing a nuclear weapon as the bloc's biggest foreign policy achievement in decades and does not want it to collapse. He is also due to meet the Israeli prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, in Brussels.

Speaking in Beijing, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang said Pompeo's statements "did not accord with the spirit" of the meeting just days earlier between Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping at the G20 summit in Argentina.

"We have a legal and religious duty to reduce the income pressure on the people". Officials have previously boasted of increasing their missile range and have specifically highlighted their supposed ability to strike U.S. bases in Afghanistan, the United Arab Emirates, and elsewhere.
