The Latest: Biden: 'We Will Act' If Iran Breaks Nuclear Deal

The Latest: Biden: 'We Will Act' If Iran Breaks Nuclear Deal

Wednesday, 09 March 2016 09:27 AM

TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — The Latest on Iran's ballistic missile tests (all times local):

2 p.m.

U.S. Vice President Joe Biden says that if Iran breaks the terms of the nuclear deal "we will act."

Biden spoke alongside Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Wednesday in Jerusalem. His warning came shortly after Iran announced that it had test-fired two ballistic missiles with the phrase "Israel must be wiped out" written in Hebrew on them.

The U.S. State Department says it plans to bring a report on another missile launch before the United Nations Security Council.

Israel strongly opposed last year's nuclear deal with Iran. Biden looked to assuage its fears by saying "a nuclear-armed Iran is an absolutely unacceptable threat to Israel, to the region and the United States." He then reiterated: "If in fact they break the deal, we will act."

7:45 a.m.

A semiofficial news agency is reporting that Iran has test-fired two ballistic missiles at a target some 1,400 kilometers (870 miles) away, with the phrase "Israel must be wiped out" written on them.

The Fars news agency offered pictures Wednesday it said were of the Qadr H missiles being fired.

The announcement of the rocket fire comes as U.S. Vice President Joe Biden visits Israel as part of a Mideast tour. It also comes after a U.S. State Department spokesman on Tuesday criticized another missile launch, saying America planned to bring it before the United Nations Security Council.

A nuclear deal between Iran and world powers including the U.S. is now underway. In the time since the deal, however, hard-liners in Iran's military have made several shows of strength.
