Iran’s missile program has been receiving considerable international attention for many years.
The United States and a range of its allies view it as a violation of UN Security Council’s 2231 resolution that recommends Tehran refrain from creating long-range ballistic missiles, as their development heavily relies on the nuclear weapons program banned under the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action.
