Iran calls on US, Europe to scrap nuclear arms, missiles

Iran calls on US, Europe to scrap nuclear arms, missiles

Le Drian's visit will kick off on Monday and will revolve around three key aspects: the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), also known as the Iran nuclear deal, Tehran's tests of ballistic missiles and situation in the Middle Eastern region.

An Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman said on March 4 that during his two-day visit to Tehran, Le Drian is due to meet with President Hassan Rohani and Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif to discuss "bilateral, regional, and global issues", including the implementation of the 2015 nuclear deal with world powers under which Tehran has signiifcantly limited its nuclear activities in exchange for sanctions relief.

The visit was originally scheduled for January but postponed due to a week of violent protests in Iran.

While Iran has accepted curbs on its nuclear work which it says is for purely peaceful purposes it has repeatedly refused to discuss its missile program, something the United States and the Europeans have called for.

Iran will not negotiate over its ballistic missiles until the United States and Europe dismantle nuclear weapons and long-range missiles, a top Iranian military official said on Saturday.

Agregó que "de acuerdo con la sección 202 (d) de la Ley Nacional de Emergencias (50 U.S.C. 1622 (d)), continúa por 1 año la emergencia nacional declarada".

Iran has said it "will not accept any amendments in (the nuclear) agreement, be it now or in the future, and it will not allow any other issues to be linked to (it)".

According to the French Treasury, bilateral trade between the two countries hit 3.8 billion euros previous year, making France the second biggest European partner of the Islamic Republic.

Iranian media reported that Le Drian's trip will prepare the grounds for the upcoming visit of French President Emmanuel Macron to Iran.

For his part, Rouhani said countries exporting weapons to Saudi Arabia - France being one of the biggest suppliers - must answer for war crimes being committed by that country in Yemen.
