Shortly after the signing of the Iran nuclear deal, U.N. resolution 2231 was put in place to bar Iran from testing ballistic missiles for a period of 8 years.
Unfortunately, the resolution is proving to be meaningless as Iran conducted a ballistic missile test on Sunday — its second such test since July.
According to U.S. officials, the medium-range ballistic missile was launched from a test site 140 miles east of Tehran. It traveled 600 miles before exploding, in what was a failed test.
As a result of Iran’s defiance, the U.N. Security Council will hold an emergency meeting today. U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley is expected to be at the meeting.
