US PRESIDENT DONALD Trump’s national security advisor has signalled a toughening stance on Iran, condemning a recent missile test and declaring that the US was “officially putting Iran on notice.”

In his first public remarks since taking office, National Security Advisor Michael Flynn accused former president Barack Obama’s administration of having “failed to respond adequately to Tehran’s malign actions.”

Citing a recent missile test and the actions of Iranian-backed rebels in Yemen, Flynn said “Iran is now feeling emboldened.”

“As of today, we are officially putting Iran on notice,” he said without elaborating.
