IRAN TO PRESS AHEAD WITH MISSILE PROGRAM




Hassam Hameed-TDO-31.10.2107- Iran to continue with its missile programme and denies any violation of international accords. Head of International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), Yukiya Amano, has verified that Iran is complying with the 2015 nuclear deal, also known as Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).

The unilateral sanctions by US are already imposed on Iran. US says the missile tests violates UN resolution, where it states that Iran cannot carry on with its missile programme which can deliver nuclear weapons.

Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani, speaking to open session of parliament, said that Iran would continue with its missile programme and is committed to its own defence. He denied US claim that Iran missile programme is a threat to region's security. Eight reports have been released by IAEA which stated that Iran is complying with the deal, hence further request by US to inspect the military bases or non-nuclear military installments is out of the question.
