WASHINGTON (Sputnik) – Iran intends to develop intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBM) with enough range to hit US soil as part of Tehran’s nuclear weapons program, former US Defense Intelligence Agency Director Michael Flynn said in congressional testimony on Wednesday.
“Iran has every intention to build an ICBM and nuclear weapons program,” Flynn told the US House Committee on Foreign Affairs. “Iran’s next generation of missiles will include ICBM’s capable of attacking the American homeland.”
Flynn also argued that the Iran nuclear agreement has several deficiencies, including the fact that it will be nearly impossible for the international community to monitor Iran’s nuclear development activities.
The nuclear agreement would allow Iran to achieve strategic dominance in the Middle East and has caused allies in the region to lose faith and trust in the United States, Flynn added.
