Britain, France, and Germany have requested a full report on Iranian ballistic missile activity from the United Nations, following recent activities by Iran that are "inconsistent" with the terms of U.N. Security Council resolution 2231. Under the terms of this resolution, Iran must refrain from "any activity related to ballistic missiles designed to be capable of carrying nuclear weapons." In their letter, European officials cited as cause for concern Iran's Safir space launch vehicle test and the display of the Defzul surface-to-surface missile and a variant of the Khorramshahr ballistic missile.
