A senior Iranian military commander says the Islamic Republic will hold no negotiations over its missile program unless the United States and Europe dismantle their nuclear weapons and long-range missiles.

“What Americans say out of desperation with regards to limiting the Islamic Republic of Iran’s missile capabilities is an unattainable dream resulting from their regional failures and defeats,” Deputy Chief of Staff of Iran’s Armed Forces Brigadier General Massoud Jazayeri said on Saturday, Press TV reported.

He added that if the development of Iran’s defense might was to have been affected by certain political negotiations, the country would not have been able to put the United States in such a position of weakness.

Iranian officials have repeatedly warned that the country’s missile program is not open to any negotiations amid US President Donald Trump’s constant efforts to link Iran’s missile program to the 2015 multilateral nuclear agreement, officially known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).
