Iran’s ballistic missile proliferation amid expiring UN restrictions
When the Missile Technology Control Regime (MTCR) was established in the late 1980’s, it was intended as a self-restraining political mechanism agreed to by Western states so that they will not compete with each other in selling strategic systems to the Iran’s and Iraq’s of the world. Later, Russia joined MTCR too, but it is ignoring its obligations under it, now that the Ukraine adventure forced Moscow to rely on military imports. This is a great opportunity for Iran, which has a weak Air Force but an extensive array of missiles and drones. Iran has also been helped by the imminent expirations of UN sanctions on its ballistic missile activity, which China and Russia were not willing to extend.
