Iran’s missiles not designed for nukes: FM Zarif

Iran’s Foreign Minister, Mohammad Javad Zarif in two tweets reacted to fresh claims made by US and its allies about Tehran’s missile program.

“The US—which violated UNSCR 2231 in withdrawing from JCPOA—or its allies (in violation of its provision on normalizing economic relations w/Iran) are in no position to push a conceited interpretation of its missile provision while pouring weapons into hands that kill Yemenis,” Zarif wrote on his official Twitter account.

“Contrary to @SecPompeo’s claim, a. UNSC 2231: “Iran is CALLED UPON” not prohibited; b. “not to undertake any activity related to ballistic missiles DESIGNED to be capable of delivering NUCLEAR weapons.” Our missiles are not “designed” for nukes, which we’re not developing,” he added.
