United Nations Security Council Resolution 1929
Iranian MPs in statement ask for resumption of missile tests. (Taz).
Members of the Iranian Parliament in a statement addressed to Chief
of Staff of Armed Forces Major General Hassan Firouzabadi asked for the
resumption of missile tests.
The MPs are signing a statement in which they have asked Firouzabadi
to order the resumption of the Islamic Republic’s missile tests, MP Ali
Taheri said during a parliament session, Fars news agency reported
He added the request comes as response to recent military threats by the United States.
In a letter addressed to the Parliament last week, Firouzabadi had
asked the MPs not to sign Iran’s recent nuclear agreement -- called the
Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action or JCPOA – because, he said, wrong
interpretations of the deal by the US could affect Iran’s military
However, he said in the same letter that the deal had some important
positive points -- which he categorized under 16 entries -- that critics
The JCPOA has put bans on Iran’s research and building of missiles that could carry nuclear warheads.
Iranian diplomats who reached the deal with the six world powers
called the group 5+1 (the US, UK, France, Russia, China, and Germany)
refer to this point and say since Iran has no plan to build
nuclear-related missiles, its missile program is practically not
restricted by the deal.
However, some critics inside Iran believe that the US could claim any
sort of missile developed by Iran and capable of carrying nuclear
warheads, thus putting strict limits on the country’s missile program.
The US has already considered some old versions of Iranian-made
missiles such as the Shahab series capable of being equipped with
nuclear warheads. Hmmm.....I'm starting to wonder when they'll ask for the keys of the White House?
