    Reports of the missile tests allegedly carried out by Iran are concerning, the UN Security Council will discuss the issue later in the day, UK Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson said Tuesday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) – On Sunday, media reports suggested that Iran conducted a medium-range ballistic missile test near Semnan, in 225 kilometers (140 miles) from Tehran.

    “Very concerning reports of Iran missile test will be discussed at the UN Security Council today. Would be inconsistent with UN resolution,” Johnson wrote on his Twitter account.

    Earlier on Tuesday, EU foreign policy chief’s spokeswoman Nabila Massrali said that the European Union was concerned about the latest ballistic missile test conducted and urged Tehran to abstain from further actions that could negatively affect the mutual trust.
