Iran has violated UN sanctions by attempting to procure Grade 5 titanium alloy bars, accoring to a UN report.

The report claimed that Iran has been involved in nuclear and ballistic missile-related activities, despite a ban preventing the action under a 2010 Security Council resolution.

The UN panel said: "On the basis of its analysis and findings, the panel concludes that Emad launch is a violation by Iran of paragraph 9 of Security Council resolution 1929."

The resolution remains valid until the a nuclear deal is implemented between Iran and the six UN nations, namely China, France, Germany, Russia, the UK, and the US.

The report confirmed that Iran had test-fired a ballistic missile capable of delivering a nuclear warhead twice in the past 90 days.

In addition to a test-launch in October, Iran tested a medium-range Ghadr-110 ballistic missile from a site in southeast Iran on 21 November

The panel claimed that Iranian rocket launches from 2012 and 2013 also violated the UN ban.

Iran had earlier denied that the test-fire was in violation of the resolution.
