LONDON, June 29 (UPI) — Iran has been testing missiles capable of delivering nuclear payloads in violation of a U.N. Security Council resolution, the British foreign minister said.

Tehran is under scrutiny from the international community for allegedly using civilian nuclear work to hide a weapons program. The Iranians deny the allegations.

British Foreign Secretary William Hague in statements Wednesday before the House of Commons said there were emerging concerns about Iranian military activity.

He accused Iran of helping its allies in Syria with suppressing an anti-government movement in the country.

“Iran has also been carrying out covert ballistic missile tests and rocket launches, including testing missiles capable of delivering a nuclear payload in contravention of U.N. Resolution 1929, and it has announced that it intends to triple its capacity to produce 20 percent enriched uranium,” Hague said. “These are enrichment levels far greater than is needed for peaceful nuclear energy.”
