Iran criticizes France over nuclear ballistic missile test
Tehran, Iran (AP) - The Iranian State Department said it was "concerned" about France's test of a new ballistic missile and that it was inconsistent with the country's international commitments, the state-run news agency IRNA reported on Saturday.
Department spokesman Abbas Mousavi said the French Navy's recent test fire on a new generation M51 ICBM that can carry multiple nuclear warheads is not compatible with France's nuclear disarmament commitments.
He urged Paris to fully comply with its international nuclear disarmament obligations.
Mousavi said the weapon is a threat to international peace and security, and testing such weapons weakens the nuclear non-proliferation treaty, which is designed to prevent the proliferation of nuclear weapons.
On Friday, the executive board of the United Nations Nuclear Guard Agency approved a resolution calling on Iran to give inspectors access to locations where the country is believed to have stored or used undeclared nuclear material.
