[efoods]The White House on Monday called Iran’s latest missile test-firings “provocative” and urged it to agree to allow immediate, unfettered access to its newly disclosed nuclear fuel plant at talks with world powers.
Iran test-fired a new round of missiles on Monday, flexing its muscle before a rare meeting in Geneva on Thursday between Iran and six countries, including the United States, after last week’s disclosure that Tehran is building a second uranium enrichment plant.
“Obviously these were pre-planned military exercises,” White House spokesman Robert Gibbs told reporters when asked about the missile tests. “I would lump any of these into the provocative nature in which Iran has operated on the world stage for a number of years.”
