US says Iran ‘bragging’ about missiles


AFP: The United States said Tuesday that Iran is “bragging” about its missile programs rather than complying with its international obligations.

WASHINGTON, June 28, 2011 (AFP) – The United States said Tuesday that Iran is “bragging” about its missile programs rather than complying with its international obligations.

Iranian state media said Iran’s elite Revolutionary Guards fired 14 missiles in an exercise Tuesday, one of them a medium-range weapon capable of striking Israel or US targets in the Gulf.

Iran’s actions “do not give anybody any confidence that they are moving in the direction of coming back into compliance with the demands of the international community,” State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said.

She said “Iran, rather than getting itself back in the good graces of the international community…. seems to be bragging about its capabilities, conducting secret programs, parading new missiles in front of the press.

“So that’s not taking us in the direction that we want to go with Iran,” she added.

Nuland said UN Security Council resolution 1929 prohibits Iran from activity related to the development of missiles capable of carrying nuclear weapons, but did not say whether Washington thought the tested missiles were nuclear capable.
