French FM Visits Iran to Talk Ballistic Missiles and Syria

Iran pushes Europe to pressure US on nuclear deal Iran: We Can Produce Enriched Uranium in Two Days if US Pulls Out of Nuclear Deal

However, top Senior Adviser to Iran's Leader Ali Akbar Velayati downplayed the importance of the French move and said his country would "not be subject to defensive restrictions even if the United States wants to impose it".

French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian was in Iran as part of a European drive to salvage the nuclear deal with Iran that President Donald Trump is threatening to scuttle and the Islamic Republic has said it may be forced to abandon.

Trump had also vowed to stop issuing waivers on United States sanctions, while threatening to end the deal if changes are not made.

The president noted that the economic, cultural, political, social and particularly the military power of the Islamic Republic will never be used against other countries, adding "we do not boost our military power to attack another country".

The Iranian official accused the U.S. administration and its allies of seeking to derail the nuclear deal by provoking internal differences in his country.

"Those who have over the past 70 years created tension, launched wars and caused destruction in the region and have committed genocide and caused [the] Sabra and Shatila [massacre] are in no position to portray Iran as a threat", Rouhani said during a cabinet session on Wednesday.

"Iran's defence power is not a threat to any country, and its enhancement is a function of the security needs", Shamkani was quoted by Tasnim as saying.

"In Yemen we are witnessing war crimes and countries that provide weapons for Saudi Arabia and the Arab coalition must be answerable in this regard", said Rouhani in the phone call with President Emmanuel Macron, according to the presidency's website. "The two sides sought refuge in Iran, and we helped and welcomed both". "Iran is [the pillar of] stability and security for the entire region, but of course, it will defend its rights [when needed]".

"Everyone should know that we are not concerned about the progress of other countries", Rouhani said.

"If we were seeking hegemony, we had many opportunities to go about it, but we never took any advantage of those situations", Rouhani maintained.
