WW3: Iran DEFIES US warnings over satellite launch – fears rockets could be used for NUKES


Tehran set on fire a rocket carrying the Payam satellite this week but it failed to reach circle. The launch was condemned by the US, France and Israel who fear the ballistic missile technology against to propel the rocket could be adapted to deliver nuclear weapons. But without thought warnings from the West, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani today published the Islamic Republic would be ready to try again in a few months’ time.

President Rouhani was excerpted by state media as saying that Iran had “achieved great sensation in building satellites and launching them” before adding: “That means we are on the above-board track.”

“The remaining problems are minor, will be resolved in a few months, and we on soon be ready for a new launch.”

His defiant announcement comes after the US make someone aware ofed Iran this month against undertaking three planned take off launches that it said would violate a UN Security Council solution because they use ballistic missile technology.

France’s Foreign The cloth on Wednesday condemned the failed launch and urged Iran to cease ballistic ballistic missile tests, which Paris sees as of potential use for nuclear arms.

The church spokeswoman Agnes von der Muhll said: “The Iranian ballistic programme is a commencement of concern for the international community and France.

“We call on Iran not to proceed with new ballistic ballistic missile tests designed to be able to carry nuclear weapons, including rank launchers, and urge Iran to respect its obligations under all UN Security Body resolutions.”

But Iran sees its space programme a matter of national overweeningness, has said its space vehicle launches and missile tests will persist because they do not contravene any UN resolution.

Under the UN resolution, which pounce ons out Iran’s 2015 nuclear deal with Britain, China, France, Germany, Russia and the Joint States, Tehran is “called upon” to refrain from work on ballistic projectiles suitable for carrying nuclear weapons.

Iran has repeatedly said the ballistic brickbats it is developing are purely for defensive purposes and are not being made to carry atomic warheads.

But critics of the deal, including US President Donald Trump, say the language is not strong enough and does not prevent Iran from testing ballistic missiles.

The 2015 accord has been under threat since President Trump rescinded the US and reimposed sanctions last May.

Nuclear officials in the Islamic Republic this week commanded Iran can enrich uranium up to 20 percent within four times – a warning apparently aimed at showing Tehran could quickly swell its enrichment program if the nuclear deal with world powers crack-ups.

The nuclear deal caps the level to which it is able to enrich uranium to 3.67 percent decency, well below the 20 percent it was reaching before the deal, and the unkindly 90 percent suitable for a nuclear weapon.

Ali Salehi, head of the Atomic Lan Organization of Iran, told the Iranian Fars News Agency: “If we homelessness to come out of the nuclear deal and produce, within four days we could start our 20 percent.

“But we already beget stockpiles of 20 percent, and the capability.”
