Defense issues Iran's redline: Top official

IRNA - Islamic Republic News Agency

Tehran, March 3, IRNA -- Top Iranian official criticized certain European countries for their remarks against Iran's missile programs and noted that commenting on Iranian defense program is none of their business.

'All officials, including Dr. Rouhani and Dr. Zarif unanimously agreed upon the fact that our defense issue is none of business of any other foreign country,' Member of the Expediency Council Ali Akbar Velayati told reporters on Saturday.

He referred to French officials' remarks against Iran's defense programs, and said that 'if the French foreign minister's visit is aimed at consolidation of relations, it is better (for him) to avoid adopting these negative stances'.
