"Until 2023, the UN Security Council has restrictions on deliveries of missile products to Iran. Russia, of course, is guided by them. But the UN Security Council documents do not prohibit Iran to independently develop, produce, test and launch spacecraft or ballistic missiles," Yermakov said.
Russia never shared ballistic missile technologies with North Korea, Vladimir Yermakov added.
"Russia strictly observes the sanctions regime established by the UN Security Council against N. Korea, including its missile part, as we are certainly not interested in the emergence of one more state with weapons of mass destruction and their means of delivery at our borders," Yermakov said.
The diplomat stressed that Russia has never delivered modern tactical missile systems to North Korea.
Last May, US President Donald Trump announced that the United States would withdraw from the 2015 Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), commonly referred to as the Iran nuclear deal, and would reimpose sanctions against Tehran.
