Iran will press on with its missile program regardless of Western pressure to halt it, a senior military commander was quoted on Monday as saying.

“Iran’s missile program will continue non-stop and foreign powers have no right to intervene on this issue,” the semi-official Tasnim news agency quoted Iranian Armed Forces spokesman Masoud Jazayeri as saying.

He also said no Iranian official had permission to “discuss this issue with foreigners,” Tasnim reported.

France’s foreign minister was in Iran on Monday to reaffirm Europe’s commitment to a nuclear deal reached between Iran and six major powers, but also to echo concerns raised by US President Donald Trump who has threatened to quit the accord.
