BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:45 P.M.) – During a State Department briefing on Thursday, the U.S. Special Envoy for Iran Brian Hook alleged that the Persian Gulf nation possesses missiles that could reach as far as Europe.

“Today, the United States is unveiling new evidence of Iran’s ongoing missile proliferation,” Hook claimed, as quoted by Sputnik News Agency.

“The Iranian threat is growing and we are accumulating risk of escalation in the region if we fail to act,” he continued.

The diplomat called on the European Union to impose new sanctions against Iran in order to weaken the Persian Gulf nation.

Further more, he claimed Iran has been purposely proliferating missiles that have the capability of reaching Europe.

“We urge all nations, especially the European Union, to move missile sanctions through the European Union so that we can start managing the risk of a regional conflict through missile proliferation,” Hook added.
