Reports of EU-Iran Missile Talks ‘A Complete Lie’: Zarif

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif
Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif dismissed as “a complete lie” claims that the European parties to the 2015 nuclear deal, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), plan to hold talks with the Islamic Republic on its missile program.

Speaking to the Tasnim News Agency, Zarif rejected a report claiming that the European Union (EU) plans to put forward a proposal to Iran outside of the framework of the JCPOA and start talks about the Islamic Republic’s missile power and regional influence, describing it as “a complete lie.”

“The EU, itself, dismissed the report,” he said, adding that the report is part of “a psychological operation” launched by the Zionist regime of Israel to spread such lies.

“We have said times and again that we are merely negotiating about the JCPOA and have no demands or words beyond the JCPOA,” the top diplomat said.

He further pointed to recent negotiations between the Iranian and European delegations to save the JCPOA following the US withdrawal from the deal and said that it cannot be said whether the results of the talks have been good or bad.

It remains to be seen what the Europeans would suggest to Iran, the top diplomat added, referring to the guarantees that the European Union (EU) should give Iran so that the country’s interests are protected after the US withdrawal from the JCPOA.
