RNA - "The Islamic Republic of Iran assesses the paragraphs of the communiqué, which are based on baseless allegations resulting from incorrect interpretation of Iran's nuclear program, regional role and missile program, as to be unconstructive and completely one-sided and biased and specially in flagrant violation of the (2015) nuclear deal and undertakings by the three European states (France, Britain and Germany)," Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qassemi said on Sunday.
He voiced regret that the US illegal and bullying behavior has influenced other G7 members, stressing that Iran has played a constructive and undeniable role in the establishment of stability, security and fight against terrorism in West Asia region, and its missile program is defensive and peaceful.
Qassemi added that such positions will not weaken the Iranian nation's determination and will not affect the Islamic Republic's approach in pursuit of the country's national interests in the region and the world, and further lashed out at the three European states for violating the basic principles of the nuclear deal.
At the end of their meeting in France, the G7 (France, Germany, Italy, Britain, US, Canada and Japan) foreign ministers issued a final joint communiqué, insisting on their deep concern over what they called as Iran’s “continuing support for terrorist organizations and armed militias”.
"We intend to continue our work to counter Iran’s regional proliferation of ballistic missiles and its unlawful arms transfers," the communiqué said.
