Nobody Allowed to Negotiate with Foreigners about Iran's Missile Power: Commander

French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian said that Iran must address worldwide concerns over its ballistic missile program or risk new sanctions.

Le Drian said that both countries had new plans for boosting cooperation in monetary and banking interactions.

The deal was struck between Iran and six world powers - the United States, Britain, Russia, France, China and Germany - and confines Iran's nuclear activity to the laboratory.

"Relations between France and Iran are old and profound because France was a pioneer of archaeological exploration here", said Jean-Luc Martinez, president of the Louvre.

"We have carried out more than 60 complementary accesses and visited more than 190 buildings since JCPOA Implementation Day", he said, referring to a specific type of inspection under the IAEA's Additional Protocol, which Iran is implementing under the deal.

Ahead of Le Drian's trip, the French Foreign Ministry issued a statement saying he would pursue "a frank and demanding dialogue with Iran".

Iran is not allowed to enrich uranium beyond 3.67 percent fissile purity under the deal, a level that is suitable for fuelling some civilian nuclear power stations and far short of the 80-90 percent that is considered weapons grade.

For his part, Le Drian hailed Iran's commitment to the JCPOA and said that France insists on the full implementation of the deal.

Iran denies supplying the rebels with that and describes its ballistic missile programme as only a defensive weapon.

"The country's defence capabilities will continue non-stop and foreigners do not have the right to enter this field", Jazayeri said Monday, according to the semi-official Fars news agency. Shamkhani, a former chief of Iran's navy, made a point to wear his military uniform to the meeting.

The hardline Javan newspaper welcomed Le Drian with the headline: "Trump's Parisian lackey in Tehran".

President Donald Trump threatened to withdraw the U.

"There are programmes for missiles with ranges of several thousand kilometres which are not in line with UN Security Council resolutions and go beyond what is needed to secure Iran's borders", Le Drian told Le Journal du Dimanche on the eve of his visit.

Iranian university students gathered at Tehran's global Mehrabad airport at on Sunday night to protest Le Drian's visit and his remarks against the country's missile program, calling on Tehran to continue progress "in defense fields".

Still, Le Drian told The Times of Israel he is not "an emissary of Trump", and "there's still a lot of work to do on Iran's missile program".
