Iran insists missile program is nonnegotiable

Iran insists missile program is nonnegotiable”

A day earlier, Qasemi "categorically" denied the reports that Tehran is ready to talk with powers over its ballistic missile program.

The Iranian foreign minister explained why the country's missile tests are not related to nuclear weapons, thus, don't violate the 2015 Iran nuclear deal amid speculations concerning alleged United States leadership's plans to withdraw from the agreement.

In a Friday statement, Bahram Qassemi stressed that the Islamic Republic of Iran has repeatedly and openly announced its stance on the matter in diplomatic meetings with foreign officials, including the interviews and talks held by Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif during his recent visit to NY.

The Iranians informed leaders of six world powers on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly last month that it wanted to reduce tensions over the program, Iranian and Western officials told Reuters.

Iran's ballistic missile program has triggered the discontent and concerns of other states, in particular, the United States due to its possible links to the Iranian nuclear program. Over the past months, Washington has imposed sanctions on some Iranian and global entities linked with Tehran's missile tests.

Trump has said repeatedly that he doesn't want to certify Iranian compliance again after having done so twice already, declaring last month he even had made his mind up about what he'll do next.

He is expected to announce next week that he will decertify the deal. If that happens, Iran has threatened to walk away from the arrangement and restart activities that could take it closer to nuclear weapons.
