President Donald Trump's national security adviser Michael Flyn revealed the United States was officially putting Iran on notice on Wednesday over its "destabilizing activity" after it test-fired a ballistic missile over the weekend.
He told a White House briefing: "As of today, we are officially putting Iran on notice."
And he claimed the missile launch was in defiance of a UN Security Council resolution that called on Iran not to undertake any activity related to ballistic missiles designed to be capable of delivering nuclear weapons.
He also added the firing demonstrated that it is "emboldened" by the controversial nuclear agreement, rather than "thankful" for the deal.
White House press secretary Sean Spicer later added that the administration "wanted to make very clear that we felt that [Iran's] actions are both provocative and in violation [of the nuclear deal] and make sure they knew that were not going to sit by and do nothing.
