Tehran, January 4 According to a report by the Islamic Republic of Iran News Agency, Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Hatibzad said on the 4th that Iran will not negotiate on its national defense force.
A reporter asked about the question that “Iran’s missile program will be at the negotiating table for the return of the United States to the Iran nuclear agreement”. Hatibzad responded that Iran “did not, did not, and will not” negotiate its defense strength.
Khatibzad said that the comprehensive agreement on the Iranian nuclear issue must be fully implemented without “no preconditions”.
The missile project is a secondary issue, and the conventional arms embargo has been lifted.” We will basically not renegotiate any part of any issue that has been negotiated within the framework of the Iran nuclear agreement.
According to Iran’s Tasnim News Agency, Hajizad, the commander of the air force of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, said on the 2nd that Iran has decided to limit the range of missiles to 2,000 kilometers on its own, but this limit is not permanent.
No Iranian official has been allowed to negotiate missile forces. This is our red line.
In July 2015, Iran reached a comprehensive agreement on the Iranian nuclear issue with the United States, the United Kingdom, France, Russia, China and Germany.
According to the agreement, Iran promised to limit its nuclear program and the international community lifted sanctions against Iran.
The U.S. government unilaterally withdrew from the Iran nuclear agreement in May 2018, and then restarted and added a series of sanctions against Iran.
Iran has gradually suspended the implementation of some of the terms of the agreement since May 2019, but promised to take measures that are “reversible”.
Some Western countries recently said that an upgraded Iran nuclear agreement was needed to restrict Iran’s ballistic missile program, which was opposed by Iran.
