The ten-page report, to be discussed Tuesday at the UNSC, suggests that the rocket was designed to carry a nuclear warhead.
Under UN standards, rockets that can carry a 500 kg payload with a range of at least 300 km (186 miles) are capable of delivering a nuclear weapon.
"[T]he launch of the Emad has a range of not less than 1,000 km with a payload of at least 1,000 kg and that Emad was also a launch 'using ballistic missile technology'," the report read. "On the basis of its analysis and findings the Panel concludes that Emad launch is a violation by Iran of paragraph 9 of Security Council resolution 1929."
Following the launch, talks by the U.S. Congress over the possible implementing of new sanctions on Iran were triggered. Washington released a statement following the report’s publication, claiming that new restricting measures could be imposed on Tehran.
The test launch is not technically a violation of the nuclear agreement reached in July between Iran and P5+1 group, diplomats quoted by Reuters noted, adding that Washington could be placed in an “awkward position,” if it remained critical of the test launch.
The Israeli Foreign Ministry said that results of the IAEA probe leave “serious doubts and outstanding issues,” without clarifying what those doubts and issues specifically are.
