'No longer will Iran be given a pass for its repeated ballistic missile violations, continued support of terrorism, human rights abuses and other hostile activities that threaten global peace and security, ' Corker, a Republican from Tennessee, said in a written statement.
And as Dan Joyner, professor of global law at the University of Alabama School of Law, explains, "the assertion that Iran's ballistic missile tests...violate UN Security Council resolutions is incorrect because, as of Implementation Day, all UNSCR's adopted prior to that date regarding Iran are terminated except for Resolution 2231".
USA officials confirmed Iran test-fired a ballistic missile Sunday.
Haley also added that America wanted to shoot down its supplies of missile technology to Tehran, and said that no other country should be supplying Iran with any of the technology which allows such risky missile tests.

Ms Haley said that was something the world "should be alarmed about". Iran has warned the USA not to use the incident to create new tensions. That said, Mattis also is a strong proponent of thinking through actions - if you do this, what might be the response, and what do you do then?
According to Behnam Ben Taleblu, an expert on Iran's missile program at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, Iran's latest missile test "definitely violates the spirit, if not the letter" of the United Nations resolution on Iran's nuclear program.
Bahram Qasemi highlighted that testing missiles is part of Iran's "inalienable right" to ensure its security and national interests, stressing that making comments on Iran's missile tests falls outside the purview of any foreign country or worldwide organization.
