Iran Denies Missile Co-Op with N. Korea

“Iran is self-sufficient in missile production and doesn't need any outside technology,” IRNA quoted Iran's Foreign Ministry Spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast as saying at a regular news briefing in the capital Tehran on Tuesday.

Mehmanparast made the comments in reaction to recent anti-Iran allegations that ballistic missile-related items are suspected to have been transferred between North Korea and Iran.

The senior Iranian official also noted that UN Security Council sanctions imposed on Iran have not slowed the country's progress on its nuclear program.

He reiterated that Iran's nuclear program is merely civilian and is moving forward “without challenges.” Mehmanparast stated that Iran is constantly in touch with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and all of the country's nuclear activities are under the watch of the IAEA.

The United States, Israel, and some of their allies accuse Tehran of pursuing military objectives in its nuclear program.

Yet, as a signatory to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty and a member of the International Atomic Energy Agency, Iran has the right to develop and acquire nuclear technology meant for peaceful purposes.

In addition, the IAEA has conducted numerous inspections of Iran's nuclear facilities but has never found any evidence showing that Iran's civilian nuclear program has been diverted to nuclear weapons production.
