Tehran refuses to negotiate again with Washington

Published: Updated:

In the first official response to the sanctions imposed by the US Treasury Department on Tehran due to its ballistic missiles programs and experiments, Iran rejected the new sanctions and considered them illegitimate. The Spokesman for the Foreign Ministry, Hussein Jaber Ansari, pointed out that the ballistic missiles program is not designed to carry nuclear warheads. He added that Iran, as it firmly asserted in the past, will respond to those acts by speeding up its ballistic missile program and increasing its defense capabilities, as he put it.
