PARIS - Reports that Iran has conducted new ballistic missile tests capable of carrying nuclear weapons are a concern and would violate UN Security Council resolutions if confirmed, a French diplomatic source said on Tuesday.

"We are checking this information. Iran's ballistic weapons program constitutes a source of preoccupation," a French diplomatic source said.

The source said it was too early to discuss what measures could be taken if the tests proved true.
