WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. government is looking into reports that Iran conducted a ballistic missile test last month, White House spokesman Josh Earnest said on Wednesday.

"The Iran ballistic missile program has been ... a source of concern for years ... and it continues to be," Earnest told reporters at a White House briefing, adding that the United States was deepening its cooperation with partners including Gulf Arab states to counter the program.
