US Warns Iran Against Planned Space Launches, Calls for Halt of Ballistic Missile Activities

The Trump administration warned Iran on Thursday to freeze its ballistic missile program, following the Tehran regime’s recent announcement of three planned space launches in the coming months.

“The United States will not stand by and watch the Iranian regime’s destructive policies place international stability and security at risk,” Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said. “We advise the regime to reconsider these provocative launches and cease all activities related to ballistic missiles in order to avoid deeper economic and diplomatic isolation.”

According to Pompeo, Iran would be violating UN Security Council Resolution 2231 — which calls upon Tehran “not to undertake any activity related to ballistic missiles designed to be capable of delivering nuclear weapons” — if it went ahead with its declared intention of sending three Space Launch Vehicles (SLVs) into Earth orbit.

The SLVs, Pompeo noted, “incorporate technology that is virtually identical to that used in ballistic missiles, including in intercontinental ballistic missiles.”
