However, in early March 2016, during military exercises, Iran launched a series of ballistic missiles. The report includes details from Iranian media and from information provided to the Secretary-General from France, Germany, the United Kingdom and the United States.
“While it is for the Security Council to interpret its own resolutions,” Mr. Feltman said, “the Secretary-General stressed that we must maintain the momentum created by the conclusion of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, consistent with its constructive spirit.”
“In this regard, he calls upon Iran to avoid such ballistic missile launches which have the potential to increase tensions in the region,” he continued.
The report focuses on the restrictive measures in Annex B to the resolution which includes restrictions on nuclear-related transfers and activities, ballistic missile-related transfers and activities, arms-related transfers, as well as an assets freeze and a travel ban. It does not report on other provisions of the resolution or Annex A (on the JCPOA), nor touch upon the work of the Joint Commission established in the agreement.
The next report of the Secretary-General will be submitted to the Council in January 2017.
