  • US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo warned of regional escalation after Iran conducted a missile test

"Iran will not abandon its defensive weapons.including its missiles that make America so angry", Iranian President Hassan Rohani said in September. Mr Pompeo also attacked America's "European friends" for accusing the United States of undermining global order and blamed Iran and China in his speech.

Despite U.S. condemnation of its missile program, the Iranian military affirmed that it will keep conducting tests, Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty (RFE/RL) reported on Monday.

Ayatollah Khamenei said at the time that if the Islamic establishment seeks technology and negotiations but lacks defense might, it will have to buckle in the face of any weak country posing threats.

Zarif recalled that the USA re-imposing of unilateral sanctions against Iran was already a violation of Security Council Resolution 22-31.

"We will continue to both develop and test missiles".

The Trump administration is urging Europe to impose tough new sanctions on Iran over its ballistic missile program. He said Iran could resume enriching uranium to 20 percent purity if it fails to see economic benefits from the 2015 deal that curbed its nuclear program.

Iranian military leaders on Sunday vowed to press ahead with weapons testing of intermediate and long-range missiles, as well as other advanced arms systems, which have been banned by sanctions issued by the USA and United Nations.

Powell's Dovish Remarks Were A Plus, But There's Still More To Come
The central bank has already hiked rates three times this year and is largely expected to raise the rate again in December. That "just below" phrasing seemed to indicate that the Fed is almost done raising rates for the time being.

"There is no Security Council resolution prohibiting the missile program and missile tests by Iran", IRNA quoted Foreign Ministry spokesman Bahram Qasemi as saying in response to Pompeo's remarks.

US President Donald Trump is building a new world order upheld by American leadership and democracy, his secretary of state told diplomats at an event in Brussels on Tuesday, blaming Iran and China for instability in the world.

Pompeo criticised Iran and China in his speech, rejecting suggestions that Washington was acting unilaterally.

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has stated that when treaties are broken, the violators must be "confronted, and the treaties must be fixed or discarded".

The United States said the missile launch on Saturday was a violation of a UN resolution that endorsed the 2015 Iran nuclear deal, from which Washington has withdrawn.

The test violates a UN Security Council resolution that bans Iran from any activity related to ballistic missiles capable of delivering nuclear weapons, according to Pompeo. "We think those sanctions can be effective if more nations can also join us in that effort", he added.
