Iran urges France to be realistic, not to act under influences

What's your other option war?: Macron blasts Trump's policy towards Iran

Bombshell from Saudi foreign minister

Iran has rejected French President Emmanuel Macron's call for negotiations regarding its ballistic missiles program.

In a statement, Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Bahram Qassemi said the country's defense affairs are not negotiable.

France has been trying to save the nuclear deal which Iran signed with six world powers - Britain, China, Germany, France, Russia and the United States.

US President Donald Trump has railed against the multiparty pact, negotiated by his predecessor Barack Obama, for being too lenient on Iran and failing to deny it leeway to develop its missile program and expand its regional influence, issues that all the parties to the deal agreed to exclude from the nuclear negotiations and the pact.

Saudi Arabia and its allies accuse Iran of supplying missiles and other weapons to the Houthis, saying the arms were not present in Yemen before conflict broke out there in 2015.

The United States has imposed unilateral sanctions on Iran, saying its missile tests violate a U.N. resolution that calls on Tehran not to undertake activities related to missiles capable of delivering nuclear weapons.

He emphasized that France must persuade its Persian Gulf allies to pursue "wise and unsentimental" policies and approaches. He then mentioned that "there are extremely strong concerns about Iran" among its Arab neighbors in the Persian Gulf. This came after "its [Iran's] Houthi proxy" in Yemen fired a missile towards the Saudi capital last week.

Saudi Arabia has urged the Arab League (AL) to hold an urgent meeting of Arab foreign ministers on what it calls Iran's interventions in the region, informed sources said.

However unlikely it is that the Saudis would take direct military action against Lebanon, the report reveals the legitimate fears of Lebanese citizens who are increasingly aware that their country has fallen in the cross hairs of an unusual alliance between Saudi Arabia, Israel, and anti-Iranian interests which see Hezbollah and pro-Iranian proxies as the number one threat and scapegoat for all of the region's problems.
