Iran rejects Macron's call for talks on missiles

"So we should negotiate a new series of criteria and a new treaty with Iran to stop their ballistic activities in the region", he said, adding that Iran's role in Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, and Yemen "destabilizes a lot of people and the whole region". On Thursday, during a visit to Saudi Arabia, Macron said there were "extremely strong concerns about Iran".

Under the JCPOA, Iran undertook to put limits on its nuclear program in exchange for the removal of nuclear-related sanctions imposed against Tehran.

"We have told French leaders on several occasions that the Iran nuclear deal is not negotiable and that no other issues can be included in the text" of the 2015 agreement, state news agency IRNA quoted Ghassemi as saying.

In the interview with Al-Ittihad, published during Macron's 24-hour visit to Abu Dhabi, the French president said: "It is important to remain firm with Iran over its regional activities and its ballistic program".

He emphasized that France must persuade its Persian Gulf allies to pursue "wise and unsentimental" policies and approaches.

"France is expected not to be influenced by the wrong assertions and claims of some Persian Gulf [Arab] states against the Islamic Republic of Iran and be realistic and fair and show foresight when considering the developments in the critical region of Middle East", he said.

Qassemi finally noted that Iran expects the French government to adopt tangible measures including pressurizing its allies into immediately stopping their war and bloodshed in Yemen in order to establish ceasefire and restore peace and stability to the country.

The Yemeni army on November 5 confirmed that it had targeted Saudi Arabia's King Khalid International Airport in Riyadh with a long-range Borkan H2 ballistic missile. During his visit to Dubai on Thursday, he referred to a missile which was sacked from Yemen and intercepted by Saudi Arabia earlier this month.

Iran has denied any involvement in the missile attack while calling the Saudi accusations "false, destructive, irresponsible and, above all, provocative".
