France will pay close attention to ensure Iran respects a UN Security Council resolution banning it from ballistic missile tests, the Foreign Ministry said on Tuesday after US officials said Tehran had conducted a new launch in November.

Iran tested a new medium-range ballistic missile on Nov. 21 in a breach of two UN Security Council resolutions, two US officials said on Monday, the second since October. France's view is important as it is one of five global powers that are permanent, veto-wielding members of the Council.

"France will be very attentive that Iran respects its international obligations in line with UN Security Council Resolution 1929," ministry spokesman Romain Nadal said in response to a question on the test.

He did not specifically confirm the launch and officials declined to comment when pressed.
