NOBEL PEACE PRIZE UPDATE: Iran missile tests have caused alarm.

Iran’s Revolutionary Guards conducted ballistic missile tests earlier this month, in what they said was a demonstration of Iran’s non-nuclear deterrent power.

[U.N. Secretary-General] Ban, speaking to reporters in Geneva on the sidelines of a conference on Syrian refugees, said: “Out of this agreement (with major powers), now Iranians have launched ballistic missiles. It is true that that has caused alarm and concern.

“But what kinds of sanctions, what kind of measures should be applied is up to the Security Council members,” he said.

I had been assured by no less than President Obama and Secretary of State Kerry that the lifted sanctions would “snap back” without any new Security Council deal if Iran violated the agreement.
