Iran Continuing Ballistic Missile Program, Says UN Report


Despite apparently reducing illicit purchases that breach UN sanctions, Iran is pursuing development of ballistic missiles, according to a confidential UN report obtained by the Reuters news agency on Thursday.

A ban on developing missiles suited to carrying a nuclear warhead is included in a 2010 Security Council resolution imposed on Iran for defying council demands that it suspend uranium enrichment and other nuclear activities of potential use in bomb-making.
