Iran calls on US, Europe to scrap nuclear weapons

Jazayeri said United States criticism of Iran's missile programme was driven by "their failures and defeats in the region".

Iran can not remain indifferent to moves aimed at equipping neighboring countries with arms on a daily basis, he added, emphasizing that Iran is a "big and the most important country in the region".

Russian Federation and the other parties to the Iran nuclear deal consider the Islamic Republic compliant and have voiced concerns over Washington's stance.

It is a given that the only way to reach peace and tranquility in the world is for the US and its European allies to review and halt policies that have led to the bloodshed and killing of defenseless and innocent people in Palestine, Yemen, Bahrain, Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria and other countries.

Velayati said statements by French officials regarding Iran's missile work will do them no good, urging the French foreign minister to avoid repeating them.

Le Drian plans to pay a visit to Iran on Monday to hold talks with senior Iranian authorities.

The Iranian military's spokesman has commented on US President Donald Trump's threat to scrap the 2015 Iran Nuclear on the pretext of Tehran developing its missile program.

Trump has repeatedly described the JCPOA, which was negotiated under his predecessor Barack Obama, as "the worst and most one-sided transaction Washington has ever entered into", a characterization he often used during his presidential campaign, and threatened to tear it up.

Recently, the United Kingdom drafted a UN Security Council resolution condemning Iran for violating the arms embargo on Yemen and calling for measures to address this alleged violation.
