A senior Iranian military official says nobody has the right to negotiate with foreigners over Iran’s defence and missile capabilities.
Spokesman for the Iranian Armed Forces Brigadier General Massoud Jazayeri said that the Islamic Republic’s defence capabilities will continue without any interruption, and foreigners will not be allowed to interfere in the case.
According to a Farsi report by Fars News Agency, he made the remarks in reaction to some reports and claims by the US and some European leaders about the missile power of the Islamic Republic of Iran.
“In the current situation, as the hegemonic regimes are making threats against the Islamic Republic of Iran or conducting war crimes in the region, the task of the armed forces is to enhance defence capabilities in all fields, including missile systems.”
Jazayeri’s comments came as French Minister of Europe and Foreign Affairs Jean-Yves Le Drian was in Tehran to hold talks with Iranian officials over different issues. Some reports say Iran’s role in the region, the country’s missile program, and saving nuclear deal from Donald Trump threats were on the agenda.
