Congressman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) released the following statement today in response to reports of yet another ballistic missile test by Iran in violation of a United Nations (U.N.) resolution:

“Iran’s track record has made it clear that they do not intend to play by the rules. Since the signing of the flawed nuclear agreement by the Obama Administration, Iran has deliberately violated a U.N. resolution by conducting multiple ballistic missile tests. On Sunday, the Iranian regime reportedly defied international law once again by launching another test weapon. Iran’s ballistic missile tests fly in the face of its neighbors in the Middle East and the United States, and this blatant defiance cannot be swept under the rug. Unlike the Iran Nuclear Agreement, which has done little to curb Iran’s aggression, the United States must continue to stand our ground against Iran’s dangerous actions, and take a strong foreign policy stance to hold the Iranian regime accountable. Ignoring Iran’s hostility is far too great of a risk.”
