Iran denies 'prepared' for talks on missile programme

Iran's Foreign Ministry spokesman on Friday "categorically" denied the reports that Tehran is ready to talk with powers over its ballistic missile programme.

Iran has repeatedly announced that "its defence programme will never be subject to negotiations," Xinhua cited IRNA news agency that quoted spokesman Bahram Qasemi as saying.

Developing "missile programme is Iran's inalienable right and will determinedly be continued in line with the country's strategic and conventional defence programme," said Qasemi.

North Korea Missile Programme Progressing Faster Than Expected: South Korea


North Korea's missile programme is progressing faster than expected, South Korea's defence minister said on Tuesday, hours after the UN Security Council demanded the North halt all nuclear and ballistic missile tests and condemned Sunday's test-launch.

The reclusive North, which has defied all calls to rein in its weapons programmes, even from its lone major ally, China, has been working on a missile, mounted with a nuclear warhead, capable of striking the U.S. mainland.
