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

  • Bombshell from Saudi foreign minister

Qassemi finally noted that Iran expects the French government to adopt tangible measures including pressurizing its allies into immediately stopping their war and bloodshed in Yemen in order to establish ceasefire and restore peace and stability to the country.

"France is fully aware of Iran's firm stance towards its defence capabilities, viewing it as non-negotiable", Bahram Qassemi said Saturday, as quoted in a statement on the ministry's website.

Emmanuel Macron called for vigilance toward Tehran over its ballistic missile program and regional activities, in an interview published Wednesday by the Emirati daily Al-Ittihad. He raised the prospect of possible sanctions with regard to those activities. The president passed the matter to the US Congress, giving lawmakers 60 days to decide whether to re-impose sanctions.

Iran has repeatedly told French officials that the agreement is "not renegotiable and Iran doesn't allow the other sides to annex other issues to it", Qassemi stated.

Obama's successor Trump decertified the deal last month and slapped sanctions on Iran's powerful Revolutionary Guards.

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.

Macron also said there was no immediate alternative to the Iranian nuclear deal - long lambasted by U.S. President Donald Trump - which curbs Iran's nuclear program.

"Like what was done in 2015 for the nuclear activities, it's necessary to put a framework in place for Iran's ballistic activities and open a process, with sanctions if needed, of negotiation that would enable [an agreement]", he added.

"Undoubtedly, this silence is interpreted as a green light by Saudi rulers to continue committing such anti-human crimes", underlined the Iranian diplomat.

The United States accused Iran on Tuesday of supplying Yemen's Houthis with a missile that was sacked into Saudi Arabia, which has been leading a coalition that has been pounding the Houthi positions in Yemen for more than two and a half years in a campaign to restore the fugitive president Abd-Rabbu Mansur Hadi.
