TEHRAN, January 17 - Iranian Defense Minister Brigadier General Amir Hatami said the country does not negotiate over its missile program.

Missile program non-negotiable, says ministerTEHRAN, Young Journalists Club (YJC) - He made the remarks after German foreign ministry spokesman said that Berlin, London and Paris are scheduled to enter talks with Tehran on missiles.

“We have not had any dialogue about the missile program, and no talks are going to be held with other countries about this issue,” he said on the sidelines of the cabinet meeting on Wednesday.

Iran and the five permanent members of the United Nations Security Council – the United States, France, Britain, Russia and China – plus Germany signed the nuclear agreement on July 14, 2015 and started implementing it on January 16, 2016.

Under the JCPOA, Iran undertook to put limitations on its nuclear program in exchange for the removal of nuclear-related sanctions imposed against Tehran.

During an interview published by the Associated Press on September 27, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said the US president "would open a Pandora's box" if he tried to renegotiate the terms of the JCPOA.

Zarif added that the possibility of renegotiating the deal was a “myth.”
