Iran to improve accuracy of missiles, not to increase range
Iran has no intention to increase the range of its missiles, but will continue working on its satellite technology to improve accuracy, secretary of Iran’s national security council Ali Shamkhani said.
"Iran has no scientific or operational restriction for increasing the range of its military missiles, but based on its defensive doctrine, it is continuously working on increasing the precision of the missiles, and has no intention to increase their range," IRIB cited Shamkhani as saying.
Iran’s minister of defense Amir Hatami said that the nation’s missile capabilities were non-negotiable, dismissing a call by European countries and the United States that its missile technology should be curbed.
"The enemies say Iran’s missile power should be eliminated, but we have repeatedly said our missile capabilities are not negotiable," Tasnim cited Hatami as saying.
