France accuses Iran of violating UN resolution

May 26, 2023

On Thursday, France expressed concern over reports of Iran's ballistic missile test, calling it a violation of the UN Security Council resolution on the basis of which the "Iran nuclear deal" was adopted.

This is stated in the commentary of the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Paris, as noted in the commentary, condemns this new violation of Resolution 2231, adopted in 2015 by the UN Security Council.

"This activity is even more worrying in the context of the further escalation of Iran's nuclear program," the French Foreign Ministry added.


The UN Security Council resolution mentioned by the French Foreign Ministry calls on Iran not to carry out any activities related to ballistic missiles capable of carrying a nuclear payload.

These, as well as other restrictions on Iran's weapons development imposed because of its efforts to develop nuclear weapons, were supposed to be gradually lifted after the conclusion of the so-called Iran nuclear deal in 2015.
