Europe's Missile Charges Aim to Cover Up Inaction on Nuclear Deal

Europe's Missile Charges Aim to Cover Up Inaction on Nuclear Deal Europe's Missile Charges Aim to Cover Up Inaction on Nuclear Deal

The Europeans are creating a big commotion over Iran's nuclear and missile programs in order to deflect attention from their failure to fulfill their commitments under the 2015 nuclear agreement, a political expert says. 
"Europe has begun to support America's rhetoric against Iran to cover up its own shortcomings," Fatemeh Sharifi wrote in a recent article published by IRNA. 
In early December, France, Germany and Britain—the European signatories to the nuclear accord—accused Iran of developing nuclear-capable ballistic missiles, alleging the move goes against a UN Security Council resolution.
Ambassadors from the three European nations urged UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres in a letter to inform the council in his next report that Iran's ballistic missile activity is "inconsistent" with the nuclear deal—officially known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action.
