Russia does not supply missile technologies to Iran that has the right to develop and test them on its own, Vladimir Ermakov, the director of the Russian Foreign Ministry's Department for Nonproliferation and Arms Control.

Axar.az reports citing Russian media.

"Until 2023, the UN Security Council has restrictions on deliveries of missile products to Iran. Russia, of course, is guided by them. But the UN Security Council documents do not prohibit Iran to independently develop, produce, test and launch spacecraft or ballistic missiles," Yermakov said.

Russia never shared ballistic missile technologies with North Korea, Vladimir Yermakov added.

"Russia strictly observes the sanctions regime established by the UN Security Council against N. Korea, including its missile part, as we are certainly not interested in the emergence of one more state with weapons of mass destruction and their means of delivery at our borders," Yermakov said.

The diplomat stressed that Russia has never delivered modern tactical missile systems to North Korea.

Earlier, a number of countries, including Germany and France — signatories to the 2015 Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, commonly known as the Iran nuclear deal — condemned Iran's satellite launches, accusing Iran of using ballistic missile technology and violating United Nations Security Council Resolution 2231 on the agreement.

Last May, US President Donald Trump announced that the United States would withdraw from the 2015 Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), commonly referred to as the Iran nuclear deal, and would reimpose sanctions against Tehran.
