Iran's Zarif dismisses Pompeo's launch warning

The Foreign Minister of the Islamic Republic of Iran Javad Zarif (pictured) dismissed on Thursday warnings from the United States, which called upon Iran not to "undertake any activity related to ballistic missiles capable of delivering nuclear weapons."

"Iran's launch of space vehicles - & missile tests - are NOT in violation of Res 2231. The US is in material breach of same, & as such it is in no position to lecture anyone on it," Zarif tweeted.

Earlier today, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo warned Iran against launching satellites into space, claiming such action would be in violation of the United Nations Security Council Resolution 2231.
