Iran’s test launches of nuclear-capable missiles did not violate a United Nations Security Council resolution, the Interfax news agency cited a Russian foreign ministry representative as saying on Wednesday.

The United States and its European allies said in a joint letter seen by Reuters on Tuesday that the launches has defied the resolution that endorsed last year’s historic nuclear deal.

“The resolution does not ban (the tests),” Interfax cited Mikhail Ulyanov, head of the ministry’s department for non-proliferation and arms control, as saying.
