Russia worried by Iran missile tests: Lavrov

MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russia is worried about Iran conducting test launches of missiles, Russian news agencies quoted Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov as saying on Monday.

“Of course it is worrisome, when missile launches happen against the backdrop of unresolved situation concerning Iran’s nuclear program,” he said.

“I am convinced restraint is needed,” Lavrov added. The agencies did not specify whether he meant restraint by Iran or by the West in response to the tests.
