Donald Trump Is Building A New Liberal Order, Says Mike Pompeo”

The Iranian ballistic missile test comes on the heels of new evidence unearthed by the United States tying Tehran to the proliferation of advanced weaponry and missiles across the Middle East, including in Yemen, where Iranian-backed rebels continue to attack a Saudi coalition seeking to stem the violence.

Such punitive measures usually involve travel bans and asset freezes and seek to choke off funding to such arms programmes.

Refuting Iranian claims that its illicit missile tests are defensive in nature, Trump administration Iran envoy Brian Hook vowed tough reprisals for Iran's most recent missile tests, which are among the most provocative in recent memory.

Resolution 2231 says Iran is "called upon" to refrain for up to eight years from work on ballistic missiles created to deliver nuclear weapons.

"Today, Iran is among the world's topmost powers in building missiles, radars, armored vehicles and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs)", the Iranian defense minister said in an exclusive interview with IRNA, emphasizing that Iran's defense power is meant to send the message of peace and friendship to other nations.

Iran's U.N. Mission said that the country's ballistic missile program is purely defensive and a "deterrent tool against foreign threats" and declared that the country isn't violating the resolution.

"We are accumulating risk of escalation in the region if we fail to restore deterrence", Pompeo said.

Hook said "progress" was being made on getting North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies to consider a proposal to target individuals and entities that play key roles in Iran's missile programme.

However, diplomacy with Iran is highly sensitive for the European Union because Brussels considers the 2015 pact to stop Tehran from developing a nuclear weapon as the bloc's biggest foreign policy achievement in decades and does not want it to collapse.

Iran becomes world missile power despite sanctions: Defence Minister

US President Donald Trump's top diplomat promised on Tuesday a new democratic world order in which Washington will strengthen or jettison global agreements as it sees fit to stop "bad actors" such as Russia, China and Iran from gaining.

Iran has repeatedly said its missile programme is not up for negotiation.

At a presentation on Thursday, Brian Hook, the U.S. special representative on Iran, attacked the US's European allies, saying that since leaving the deal USA officials had found "freedom and leverage" to tackle Iran's regional influence, and he chided other nations for not getting on board.

Iran wants to increase its missiles' range, a senior military official was quoted as saying Tuesday, a move that would irk the United States which views Tehran's weapons program as a regional security threat.

That has frustrated officials.

Iran has test-fired a missile allegedly capable of hitting Europe.

The spokesman said Russian Federation had urged the West to engage in dialogue with Iran instead of introducing new sanctions.

"Don't rule out us looking at sanctions again because we aren't getting concrete results for now", the diplomat said.
