Iran has defended their ballistic missile testing after being put ‘on notice’ by the United States.
The supreme leader of Iran, Ali Khamenei (pictured), said that they will not bow to pressure.
This response comes after President Donald Trump’s national security adviser Michael Flynn told reporters that the administration “condemns such actions by Iran that undermine security, prosperity and stability throughout and beyond the Middle East that puts American lives at risk”.
He said “Iran is now feeling emboldened”, criticising the Obama administration for failing “to respond adequately”.
A defence official said this week that the missile test ended with a “failed” re-entry into the earth’s atmosphere.
The official had no other details, including the type of missile.
