Washington, D.C.- Senator Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas) today released the following statement on reports that Iran conducted ballistic missile tests in an apparent violation of United Nation Security Council Resolution:

"Today we once again witnessed the consequences of President Obama's continued deference to dictators and rogue regimes. From Iran to North Korea, it's clear our enemies no longer fear the United States. Conducting ballistic missile tests is akin to throwing dirt in the face of the entire free world. And it reveals Iran has little intention of abiding by the terms of the nuclear deal it agreed to just months ago. President Obama should recognize this truth and take immediate steps to confront our enemies in Iran, North Korea and around the world."
