IRGC Commander warns Israel over any military action against Iran, says Israel won’t have a cemetery left to bury corpses.
Iran’s Foreign Ministry spokesman Bahram Qassemi stressed on Monday that the country would never negotiate over its missile program, saying that the country will continue to boost its deterrence power “to protect national security.”
“Our policy on missiles is clear and the issue as part of our country’s defense sector cannot be negotiated,” he was quoted as saying by Iran’s Tasnim news agency.
The missile program is in line with efforts to protect the country’s security, Qassemi said, adding that Iran does not want to have difficulties acquiring weapons if needed.
Qassemi also denied holding secret talks with France over the Islamic Republic’s controversial ballistic missile program after French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian said it was ready to impose more sanctions if there was no progress in talks over the program.
