Iran negotiates missile program with France to avoid probable military strike

Iranian Foreign Ministry is currently conducting secret negotiations with France concerning the former's missile program, in order to avoid a potential military strike, Iranian MP Javad Karimi Ghodoosi.

Ghodoosi, a member of the National Security and Foreign Policy Committees of Iran’s parliament told Icana News Agency on Thursday that such talks were recorded.

The government cannot deny that these negotiations took place, Ghodoosi said, asserting that the Iranian foreign minister told him that his information is correct, adding: "we are not negotiating with them, we are only talking to them."

Ghodoosi said that the current Iranian policy encourages tougher sanctions against Iran.

France, Germany and Britain expressed concern in a letter released Tuesday that Iran’s latest ballistic missile activities are part of increasing actions to develop missiles capable of delivering a nuclear weapon.
