The United States called a meeting of the UN Security Council Tuesday in response to Iran’s test of a ballistic missile over the weekend.

US Ambassador Nikki Haley called the launch “absolutely unacceptable.”

Haley said Tuesday that Iran is “being naive” by thinking the U.S. and others accept its contention that it has no intention of attacking any country.

Haley said the missile Iran launched Sunday can deliver a nuclear weapon.

The council referred the matter to its committee on Iran and asked for an investigation.

The United Kingdom’s Ambassador Matthew Rycroft called the missile test: “potentially destabilizing in an already unstable region.”

Iran has confirmed they did test a missile, but stated that the missile cannot carry nuclear weapons.
