Says no missile talks unless West gives up its nuclear weapons

The bucolic north of Israel is relatively peaceful for now. But the specter of war is looming

The U.S. concerns about Iran's nuclear power stem from "their failures and defeats in the region", Jazayeri said.

A display featuring missiles and a portrait of Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei is seen at Baharestan Square in Tehran, Iran on September 27, 2017.

He added Iran will not let interference in its affairs.

Iran says its missile program is a conventional one aimed at deterrence and self-defence and is not negotiable.

Velayati noted that the French foreign minister should avoid adopting negative position against Iran if he seeks expansion of relations between Tehran and Paris.

It is a given that the only way to reach peace and tranquility in the world is for the USA 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.

Baird set a $4.00 price objective on J C Penney and gave the stock a "hold" rating in a report on Thursday, January 4th. Turning to Tronox Limited (NYSE:TROX), its shares were trading at $20.36 a gain of $2.08, on the trading floor.

Iranian officials have repeatedly emphasized that the country's missile program is merely for defensive and deterrent purposes, warning that it is not open to any negotiations.

Iran will not conduct talks on its ballistic missile program until the USA and European countries dismantle their nuclear weapon arsenal, said an Iranian military official on Saturday.

Jazayeri's remarks come as President Donald Trump's administration is trying to convince European allies to renegotiate the 2015 Iran nuclear deal to include potential sanctions against Tehran for its ballistic missile program.

Iran's Deputy Chief of Staff said on Saturday that Tehran will not discuss its missile program with the West until the U.S. and others dismantle their nuclear weapons and long-range missiles.

French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian is expected to arrive in Iran for an official visit Monday, during which he is expected to raise Iran's missile program.
