UN asked to take action against Iran for recent missile test

The United States, France, Britain and Germany asked the U.N. Security Council on Wednesday to investigate and take “appropriate action” against Iran for conducting a ballistic missile test earlier this month, which they say violated U.N. sanctions. A report to the council committee monitoring sanctions against Iran from the four countries, which U.S. Ambassador Samantha Power raised

at a council meeting, said the medium-range missile launched by Iran on Oct. 10 “is inherently capable of delivering a nuclear weapon.” It said the missile firing is “a serious violation” of a Security Council resolution adopted on June 9, 2010 that bans Iran from undertaking “any activity related to ballistic missiles capable of delivering nuclear weapons, including launches using ballistic missile technology.”
