Today Iran said it would never use its ballistic missiles to attack another country but its missile tests are neither part of a nuclear accord with world powers nor a U.N. Security Council resolution endorsing the deal.

Visiting French Foreign Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault had raised its concerns over the Iranian test, adding that it harmed the international community’s confidence in Tehran and contravened U.N. Security Council Resolution 2231.
Today, 31/1/2017 the U.N. Security Council will hold an emergency meeting Tuesday, at the request of the United States, to discuss Iran’s latest ballistic missile test.
