Iran announced on Wednesday that it will not negotiate over its controversial missiles program.

Iran’s announcement came in light of International positions refusing its recent ballistic tests and demands within the US administration of President Donald Trump, to review the nuclear agreement between Tehran and the P5+1 group of powers to urge the Iranian regime to comply with the terms of the agreement, prohibiting experiments on missiles carrying nuclear warheads.

Iranian Fars agency quoted Iranian Shura Council's national security and foreign policy committee spokesman Hussein Husseini saying that the Commission confirmed during its meeting on Wednesday that the defense and missiles programs are not negotiable, and that he will not allow anyone’s intervention in this matter.

Husseini said that the Committee held an urgent meeting on Wednesday, in the presence of the Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps Aerospace Force Brigadier General Amir Ali Hajizadeh, deputy foreign minister for European and American Affairs Majid Takht Ravanchi, and officials from the Intelligence Ministry. The meeting was to discuss the American positions.

He stressed that the participants agreed that “the defense and missiles issue is not negotiable and should witness outstanding progress. He added that the Shura Council should show its support in this matter.
