Iran to continue missiles production
Iran will continue to produce missiles for its defense, because it does not consider that a violation of international accords, President Hassan Rouhani said in a speech broadcast on state television.
“We have built, are building and will continue to build missiles, and this violates no international agreements,” Rouhani said in a speech in parliament.
The United States has already imposed unilateral sanctions on Iran, saying its missile tests violate a UN resolution, that calls on Tehran not to undertake activities related to missiles capable of delivering nuclear weapons.
Iran denies seeking nuclear weapons and says it has no plans to build nuclear-capable missiles.
