Tehran will consider negotiating over its ballistic missiles only after the US and Europe dismantle their nukes, a top Iranian military official said. Iran has repeatedly dismissed Western calls to disarm as unreasonable.

"The condition for negotiating Iran's missiles is the destruction of the nuclear weapons and long-range missiles of the United States and Europe," Iranian Armed Forces spokesman Masoud Jazayeri said on Saturday, as cited by state media.

Although agreeing to limit its nuclear energy program in exchange for the lifting of economic sanctions, Iran - which is surrounded by US military bases and war-torn failed states - has never expressed interest in negotiating over its ballistic missiles, insisting that they are a much-needed deterrent.

In February, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani stated unequivocally that: "We will negotiate with no one on our weapons." He added that Iran's missiles "are defensive and are not designed to carry weapons of mass destruction, since we don't have any."

Several weeks later, Tehran was compelled to lay out its position once again after French President Emmanuel Macron called on Iran to place its missile program under international surveillance. Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Bahram Qassemi dismissed Macron's remarks, saying that Iran's missile capabilities were within the framework of the country's military doctrine, which is based on a policy of defense and deterrence.

The spokesman went on to suggest that the real threat to the region stems from the United States and Europe flooding the Middle East with sophisticated weapons.
Washington and Europe have tried on numerous occasions to use the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), known colloquially as "the nuclear deal," as a springboard for forcing concessions to Iran's missile program - but to no avail.

Iran's Deputy Foreign Minister and chief nuclear negotiator Abbas Araghchi noted that Western powers must adhere to the 2015 deal before pressing Tehran to negotiate on other issues.

"Now they ask Iran to enter discussions on other issues. Our answer is clear: make the [deal] a successful experience and then we discuss other issues," Araghchi said in February.

President Donald Trump has repeatedly threatened to pull the US out of the historic agreement, describing it as "a very, very bad deal." In January, Trump said the US would withdraw from the deal unless its "terrible flaws" are fixed.

"The US is trying to pressure us into withdrawing from the nuclear deal, but we will not fall into their trap," Araghchi stated. "If the US withdraws, no country would hold negotiations with them any longer."

We wont ever surrender, We need to just do something about these countries already . Just a random attack on all enemy countries with a bomb 100x the size of Hiroshima.
No more issues.

The solution to the "problems" created by these countries is to drop a bomb on them, BIGGER than those dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki? Now, in what world would that be an acceptable thing? If you would drop bombs on every country that has an issue with the United States or causes diplomatic annoyances to the United States, you'd have to bomb the mayority of countries. If one country doesn't wish to give in to demands that another country tries to imply on them, your solution is to go "OMEGALUL DROPPIN BOMBS RIGHT NOW"? Yeah, that's very sane.

Now, I don't agree with the United States having to surrender their nuclear weapons just to have another country do so as well; sadly, nuclear weaponry is what creates an illusion of power for countries, other than its economic status. I just find it ridiculous that the solution to every country deemed "problematic" by the United States has to be dealt with, with bombs or invasions.

How about we do something about " our countries " first. The solution isnt always overseas.

I severely hope you don't focus too much on thoughts like this, I also hope you live no where near any schools..

What you said isn't a logical solution and it's possibly the most concerning thing I've heard today.. Please take your time and process your thoughts as this type of behavior can lead up to tragedy in the long or short run.

Why would Iran or North Korea EVER give up their arms? I mean Iran doesn't even have nuclear weapons, which is already putting themselves at such risk.

Gaddafi gave up his WMDs.... and then we toppled his government, getting Gaddafi personally murdered and raped by a bayonet, then leading to a civil war that is still raging to this day.

Should be interesting to see if Trump and Kim Jong Un finally meet.
