Iran says “successfully” conducted missile test (UPDATE)
Baku, Azerbaijan, Feb. 2
By Farhad Daneshvar – Trend:
Iranian Defense Minister Hossein Dehqan says the country’s recent missile test was "successful".
He said the country’s missile tests are neither against the nuclear deal reached between Iran and the world powers in 2015 nor the UN Security Council Resolution 2231, Tasnim news agency reported Feb. 2.
Earlier on Feb. 1, Brigadier General Dehqan also confirmed that Iran carried out a ballistic missile test.
He said that the Islamic Republic will not allow foreigners to interfere in its defense affairs.
Flowing the reports on Iran’s missile tests, the White House announced that it put Iran "on notice" on Wednesday for test-firing a ballistic missile and said it was reviewing how to respond, taking an aggressive posture toward Tehran that could raise tensions in the region, Reuters reported.
