Tehran vetoes discussion of its missiles in nuclear talks
Iran’s defense minister said Wednesday that Iran’s missile program has nothing to do with the nuclear negotiations in progress with the six world powers and it has no nuclear dimensions. Iran's missiles are not up for discussion under any circumstances," he told the semiofficial Fars news agency. "Iran's missiles are only our concern … We don't accept any intervention from anybody on this issue." This was Tehran’s answer to a statement by senior US negotiator Wendy Sherman that Iran’s ballistic missiles would be on the table of future sessions.
