Iran sets up terms for missile talks

USA demands to limit Iran's ballistic missile program are, however, an unreachable goal portraying Washington's failures in the region.

Russian Federation and the other parties to the Iran nuclear deal consider the Islamic Republic compliant and have voiced concerns over Washington's stance.

"Japan has a special significance and status for the Islamic Republic of Iran", highlighted the Iranian official who also chairs the Azad University's board of trustees.

"If the French foreign minister's [upcoming] visit [to Tehran] is aimed at strengthening relations, he'd better avoid taking such negative positions", Velayati pointed out.

"You know that the Iranian people have good memories of the Japanese people, and Japan is an important country for Iran, and because of this, it has an important place", he said, referring to his former meetings with Japan's foreign minister and Shinzo Abe and other officials.

Iran's defence programme is not the business of any country including France, a senior adviser to Iran's Supreme Leader said, The Express Tribune reports.

Jazayeri's remarks come as President Donald Trump's administration is trying to convince European allies to renegotiate the 2015 Iran nuclear deal to include potential sanctions against Tehran for its ballistic missile program.

Recently, the United Kingdom drafted a UN Security Council resolution condemning Iran for violating the arms embargo on Yemen and calling for measures to address this alleged violation.

A senior Iranian military official said here on Saturday that Iran will not negotiate its missile programme unless Europe and the U.S. destroy their nuclear weapons and missiles.

"What Americans say out of desperation with regards to limiting the Islamic Republic of Iran's missile capability is an unattainable dream", said Masoud Jazayeri, Iran's Deputy Chief of Staff.
