UN Resolution 2231 has nothing to do with Iran defense power

Tehran, March 13, IRNA – Foreign Ministry Director General for Political and International Affairs Hamid Baeedinejad said on Sunday that there is no contradiction between Iranian defense power and the UNSC resolution 2231.

He said that the United Nations Security Council Resolution 2231 has nothing to do with Iranian missile defense power and there is no contradiction between the missile test and the resolution.

UNSC resolution 2231 acknowledged the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action and they have nothing to do with Iran’s missile capabilities, he wrote on his telegram.

Iran never accepted the issue of its missile to be considered as part of nuclear talks with G5+1 on the nuclear dispute, he said.

‘We know that extremists are very angry with Iran missile test and do their best to stop it by violating the JCPOA or impose new sets of sanctions on Iran but the US government and G5+1, the permanent members of the United Nations Security Council should abide by the rule of the game,’ he said.
