The UN Security Council is meeting at the request of France, Germany and the UK, who are involved in the 2015 Iran nuclear deal. The three nations say ballistic missiles launched by Tehran are “inconsistent” with the council resolution that endorsed the agreement.

The three Western powers sent a letter to the council, which was circulated during the meeting, saying Iran’s launches of Zolfaqar and Qiam short-range ballistic missiles on Sept. 30 and Oct. 1 “are inherently capable of delivering nuclear weapons.”

A provision in the 2015 Security Council resolution calls on Iran “not to undertake any activity related to ballistic missiles designed to be capable of delivering nuclear weapons.”
