5 de diciembre de 2019, 14:36Tehran, Dec 5 (Prensa Latina) Iranian Foreign Minister Mohamad Yavad Zarif discarded on Thursday allegations of three European powers regarding the possession by the Islamic republic of ballistic missiles with nuclear capability.

Ambassadors from France, Germany and the UK have again alleged that Iran has developed nuclear-capable ballistic missiles, in a joint letter addressed to the United Nations Secretary-General officially released by the UN on Wednesday.

If Britain, France, and Germany "want a modicum of global credibility, they can begin by exerting sovereignty rather than bowing to U.S. bullying", Zarif wrote.

Iran has breached a number of commitments under the deal in recent months in response to US President Donald Trump's decision past year to abandon the deal and reinstate economic sanctions.

The landmark 2015 deal gave Iran relief from economic sanctions in return for curbs on its nuclear program.

Iran accused France, Germany and the United Kingdom on December 5 of "a desperate falsehood" for saying its missile program goes against a U.N. resolution calling on Tehran not to undertake any activity related to nuclear-capable ballistic missiles.

The US Navy has seized guided missile parts on a boat bound for Yemen which it believes came from Iran.

The European powers also pointed to three other launches this year, including that of the Borkan-3, a new medium-range ballistic missile tested by Iranian-backed Houthi forces in Yemen on Aug 2. It said: "The Shahab-3 booster used in the test is a Missile Technology Control Regime category-1 system and as such is technically capable of delivering a nuclear weapon".

In response, Ravanchi rubbished the "unreliable" social media sources and the testimony of the IAEA, whose purview is nuclear energy, and not missile technology.

Furthermore, the envoy argued that according to the terms of 2015's Security Council resolution 2231, none of the country's missiles are "designed to be" exclusively capable of carrying nuclear weapons, and are therefore not limited by the resolution.

"If the United States or Israel were to bomb Iran, its military could use missiles hidden in Iraq to strike back against Israel or a gulf country", the report says.

Iran's Deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Arakchi has said that Iran has no plans to withdraw from this agreement, even after reducing its commitments under the 2015 Iran Nuclear Agreement.
