UN Resolution 2231 does not prohibit Iran from carrying out any missile tests, Iran's Foreign Ministry spokesman Abbas Mousavi said at a press conference in Tabriz.
Axar.az informs that, the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JPOA) is purely about nuclear program, Mousavi noted, adding that Iran discussed nuclear issues in the JPOA meetings, not missiles.
Iran is worried about the new missile test of the US, and believes that the unilateral withdrawal of the US from the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty (INF Treaty) will destabilize the world, the ministry spokesman said.
In January 2016, JCPOA was launched between Iran and the P5+1 group (US, Russia, China, UK, France and Germany) in connection with Iran's nuclear program. In May 2018, the US announced its withdrawal from the deal and imposed sanctions against Iran in November of the same year. In order to preserve the agreements reached as part of the JCPOA, the European signatories of the deal stated in January 2019 that a financial mechanism for maintaining trade with Iran called INSTEX was formed.
