US calls for EU sanctions on Iranian ballistic programOver the weekend, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo charged that Iran tested a medium-range missile capable of carrying multiple warheads and striking parts of Europe and the entire Middle East. In Paris, the French foreign ministry also condemned the Iranian missile test as "provocative and destabilizing," and noted that it was not in compliance with the UN resolution. France "calls on Iran to immediately cease all activity linked to ballistic missiles conceived to carry nuclear weapons, including all launches using ballistic missile technology," it said.
