We assess that Iran has an extensive ballistic missile programme, in contravention of UN Security Council Resolutions 1737, 1747, 1803 and 1992. Iran's ballistic missile programme includes missiles capable of delivering a nuclear payload. However, we are not aware of any current links between Iran’s ballistic missile programme and nuclear programme.
