Germany's Foreign Ministry condemned what it calls Iran's recent test of a ballistic missile.

Iran Press/Iran news: "We condemn the tests of the Iranian intermediate-range missile, such tests are incompatible with current UN Security Council Resolution 2231 of 2015," Germany's Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Adebar said Monday.

"Such actions increase the already high security tensions in the region," Germany's Foreign Ministry spokeswoman added according to UrduPoint News.

"Berlin urges Iran to stop such actions," Germany's Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Adebar concluded.

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said in a tweet on Sunday that the US is falsely accusing Iran of violating UN Security Council 2231 resolution while it has earlier breached the same resolution.

Zarif said: "for producing high precision missiles there is a need for conventional warhead. Iran designed it only for its' conventional warhead, meanwhile there is no need for weapons of mass destruction to use high precision technology. So US secretary of state  Mike Pompeo's remarks regarding Iran's missile testing is not based on reality as his other remarks."

The coordinated campaign of US and Germany against Iran is while former spokesperson for EU foreign affairs & security policy, Nabila Massrali earlier announced that Iran's missile tests are not in violation of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).

Iranian air defense forces launched a homemade missile system and unveiled a new artillery system on 5 November, during a joint military drill.

Iran's missile power is not an unconventional issue, but US officials are trying to present it in a distorted way in the framework of Iran phobia. It is worth mentioning that the missiles which Iran is producing have not been designed to carry nuclear warhead. Iran's missile power is used to repulse the threats in the country and in the region.

In the recent months, Iran showed that it can hit any terrorists' target with high precision missiles.

US President Donald Trump unilaterally withdrew Washington from the nuclear agreement in May and reintroduced sanctions on Iran in August.

Iran said that US withdrawal from JCPOA is a clear violation of UN Security Council Resolution 2231 of 2015.

The US withdrawal was met with worldwide criticism, particularly by other signatories to the international agreement. Britain, France, Russia, China, Germany and the European Union have stressed their compliance with the deal and their support for its proper implementation.
