Iran Urges France to Make Regional Allies Opt for Rationality

Iran Urges France to Make Regional Allies Opt for Rationality

Iran's Foreign Ministry rejected on Sunday French President Emanuel Macron's call to hold talks on Tehran's ballistic missile program.

His comments came after French President Emmanuel Macron urged firmness with Iran regarding its missile program and influence in the Middle East, in an interview with the United Arab Emirates-based al-Ittihad newspaper.

The United States had accused Iran on Tuesday of supplying Yemen's Houthi coup militias with a missile that was sacked into Saudi Arabia in July and called for the United Nations to hold Tehran accountable for violating two UN Security Council resolutions.

"We have told French officials repeatedly that the nuclear deal is not negotiable and other issues will not be allowed to be added to it".

The incident is a "part of this ballistic activity of Iran in the region, which is not covered by the [nuclear] deal", Macron told the Times.

"The missile that was intercepted by Saudi Arabia launched from Yemen, which obviously is an Iranian missile, shows precisely the strength of their" weapons program, Macron said on November 9. On Thursday, during a visit to Saudi Arabia, Macron said there were "extremely strong concerns about Iran".

"Like what was done in 2015 for the nuclear activities, it's necessary to put a framework in place for Iran's ballistic activities and open a process, with sanctions if needed, of negotiation that would enable [an agreement]", he added.

The French head of state has made efforts to preserve the deal, telling Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, last month, that France remained committed to the deal while stressing the need for dialogue.

The United States Congress now has 60 days to reimpose nuclear sanctions.

While U.S. President Donald Trump decertified the agreement and imposed sanctions on the Iranian Revolutionary Guards. Following Trump's move, President Hassan Rouhani stated that Iran "will produce any weapons of any kind that we need and stockpile it and use it at any time to defend ourselves", which in his eyes does not violate any global agreements.
