Iran's Rouhani: West Will Regret Collapse Of Nuclear Deal

Iran's Rouhani: West Will Regret Collapse Of Nuclear Deal

Separately, Iran confirmed that the Iranian foreign minister had met his former United States counterpart John Kerry on the sidelines of a Munich meeting last month.

Reports have surfaced that European countries, including France, are pressing Iran to limit its missile program in order to keep the White House in the 2015 nuclear deal.

Mr. Le Drian has become confident that his visit to Iran would not result in anything against the Iranian interests, Velayati added.

"Iran is an independent country and can defend itself in any way it sees fit whether with missiles or any other defensive means", Velayati told reporters in Tehran.

Javan emphasized, "The Europeans have been affected by the psychological maneuvering of [Donald] Trump to pressure the Islamic Republic to hold talks for a complementary JCPOA [Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action], and this issue led Shamkhani to tell the French foreign minister explicitly that 'Europe's policy of giving concessions to the U.S. to keep it within the JCPOA is incorrect and means passivity and surrendering to the psychological games of Trump'".

In a separate statement, Le Drian called upon the worldwide community to take action to prevent Iranian missiles from becoming a threat to "all regional actors".

Tehran has repeatedly stated that the country's missile program is purely defensive, but says it would consider negotiations if the United States and its nuclear-armed allies first dismantled their weapons of mass destruction. Trump's obduracy in killing the #JCPOA stems from the same unsafe imprudence.

Blackberry sues Facebook over patent infringement
However, the BlackBerry spokeswoman Sarah McKinney said in an email that the litigation is "not central to BlackBerry's strategy". Facebook is facing a lawsuit from BlackBerry for infringing a messaging technology patent in a Los Angeles Federal Court.

However, recent evidence from the United Nations, which confirms what Saudi Arabia and the USA had already said, shows that Iran has been allowing these "peaceful" weapons to fall into the hand of the Iran-backed Houthis in Yemen who fired a series of missiles at Saudi Arabia, in violation of two UN resolutions.

France is a signatory of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), the 2015 deal which put limitations on Iran's nuclear energy program in exchange for lifting worldwide sanctions.

Javad Zarif, Iran's foreign minister, also said Europe should compel the U.S. to abide by the deal, "rather than trying to appease" Washington.

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif says Europe must pressure the United States to fulfill its obligations under the 2015 nuclear agreement amid Washington's threat to pull out of it.

"Now they ask Iran to enter discussions on other issues".

Macron said France expected "a constructive contribution by Iran to regional de-escalation and the resolution of crises in the Middle East", said the statement.
