Iran tells France nuclear deal 'not negotiable'
Iran's nuclear deal is "not negotiable", Iranian foreign ministry spokesman Bassam Ghassemi said in response to remarks by French president Emmanuel Macron, The Local reported on Sunday.
Macron called for vigilance towards Tehran over its ballistic missile programme and regional activities in an interview published Wednesday by the Emirati daily Al-Ittihad.
"We have told French leaders on several occasions that the Iran nuclear deal is not negotiable and that no other issues can be included in the text" of the 2015 agreement, Ghassemi said.
France, the foreign ministry speaker said, is "fully aware of our country's intangible position concerning the issue of Iran's defensive affairs which are not negotiable".
In the interview with Al-Ittihad, published during Macron's 24-hour visit to Abu Dhabi, the French president said: "It is important to remain firm with Iran over its regional activities and its ballistic programme."
