Pompeo to discuss JCPOA at UNSC meeting
U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo will address a UN Security Council meeting in New York on Wednesday.
At the meeting he will underscore the Trump administration’s resolve to address the Iran ballistic missile threat, the State Department said in a press release.
"Pompeo will travel to New York City to participate in a UN Security Council meeting on Iran on Wednesday, December 12, 2018," the release says. "During the Security Council meeting, Secretary Pompeo will underscore the Administration’s unyielding resolve to address the Iranian regime’s threats to international peace and security through their continued development and proliferation of ballistic missiles in defiance of United Nations Security Council Resolutions."
Previously, the Iranian Foreign Ministry refuted Pompeo's claim that the Iranian missile program allegedly violated the UN resolution, Sputnik recalls.
Iranian Armed Forces spokesman Abolfazl Shekarchi said that Iran would continue to conduct missile tests without asking other countries for permission. He stressed that the missile test had been aimed at ensuring the country's defence in relation to national security.
