NEW YORK - “Iran continues to disregard its obligations to UN resolutions,” Israel’s ambassador to the United Nations, Danny Danon, wrote in an urgent letter sent to members of the UN Security Council on Saturday, calling for them to condemn Iran’s test launch of ballistic missiles this week.

“This latest provocation makes it clear that the ‘smile campaign’ of the current regime is nothing more than a smokescreen to disguise the real intentions of the ayatollah regime,” Danon added.

The ambassador pointed out that the missile test is “a gross violation” of Security Council resolution 2231, which endorsed the nuclear agreement between Iran and the P5+1 group and restricts Iran from launching missiles capable of carrying a nuclear warhead.
