Iran rejects Macron call for talks on Iranian missiles

During his visit to the United Arab Emirates on Thursday, Macron suggested amending the JCPOA.

Iran swiftly dismissed French President Emmanuel Macron's call for talks relating to Tehran's ballistic missiles program.

The diplomat stressed that the country's missile program is designed for its defense and has no relation to a nuclear agreement with the world powers. Washington has also called for the United Nations to hold Tehran accountable for violating two United Nations security Council resolutions. He added, though, that France was committed to the landmark nuclear deal with Iran, which puts restrictions on Iran's nuclear activities in exchange for sanctions relief.

"There are negotiations we need to start on Iran's ballistic missiles", Macron said.

"France officials including its president are well aware that levelling false accusations against the Islamic Republic of Iran stands in stark contradiction to the realities of the Middle East over the past decades", Qassemi responded.

Harrigian's remarks appear to corroborate Saudi charges attributing the missile to Iran. This came after "its [Iran's] Houthi proxy" in Yemen fired a missile towards the Saudi capital last week.
