TEHRAN (ISNA)- Iranian Defense Minister Brigadier General Hossein Dehghan said the country's missile power is serving regional peace, stability and security.

The Islamic Republic of Iran has never sought producing missile with nuclear warhead, he said, adding, "Missile power of the Islamic Republic of Iran is in favor of region's peace, stability and security and we have never had any stop in designing, producing and testing missile weapons and we have added to the volume of productions."

He also said that sanctions would be removed by the next two weeks and Iran's interactions with other countries would expand further.

"We will implement the JCPOA in case the other side lives up to its commitments. We will stop implementing the JCPAO if the other side refuses to abide by its obligations."
