He made the statement following US Secretary of State John Kerry’s proposal on Thursday to negotiate a “new arrangement” for Iran’s missile program. The US has criticized Iran’s missiles program as a threat to regional and global peace. Iran insists that the program is for peaceful purposes and an appropriate measure to enhance national defense and security.
