US voices ‘concern’ on Iran space launch but says committed to talks

The United States voices concern about Iran’s new space launch, saying it will help the clerical state’s missile program, but indicates it is still pursuing diplomacy in an effort to return to the Iran nuclear deal.

“The United States remains concerned with Iran’s development of space launch vehicles, which pose a significant proliferation concern,” a US State Department spokesperson says.

But amid talks in Vienna on reviving the 2015 nuclear accord, she says, “We are seeking a mutual return to full compliance with the deal.”
