Saudi Arabia urges urgent Arab League meeting on Iran

"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 [that]", he said in a press conference in Dubai, the UAE, on Thursday.

"We have told French officials repeatedly that the nuclear deal is not negotiable and other issues will not be allowed to be added to it", Qassemi said, according to a statement on the ministry's website.

Tehran expects Paris to remain "realistic, fair and farsighted" when it comes to the sensitive developments in the Middle East and the Persian Gulf regions, Qassemi underlined.

Gordon says she told a colleague at the time of Weiner's comment, but didn't report the incident for fear of reprisals. While working together late one night, she alleges he said she owed it to him to let him see her naked.

The US says the missile fired at Saudi Arabia was supplied by Iran.

When asked whether Saudi Arabia was headed for a direct conflict with Iran, Al-Jubeir replied, "We hope not". While Iran denies allegations it provides weapons to the rebels, Macron said the missile was "obviously" Iranian, echoing USA claims.

"France officials including its president are well aware that levelling false accusations against the Islamic Republic of Iran stands in stark contradiction to the realities of the Middle East over the past decades", Qassemi responded.

The National Security and Foreign Policy Committee of the Majlis, the Iranian parliament, also responded to the French President.

Trump announced last month that he will no longer certify Iran's compliance, despite the United Nations nuclear agency's reports verifying Iran's full commitment.

The French leader alleged that it was "obviously is an Iranian missile", which "shows precisely the strength of their program". The fate of the deal has fallen on the US Congress which has 60 days to reimpose nuclear sanctions. The diplomat stressed that the country's missile program is designed for its defense and has no relation to a nuclear agreement with the world powers.
