Iran missile activities legitimate: French official

Tehran, Iran's defensive missile activities are legitimate, head of Center for Strategic Studies in the French Foreign Ministry said on Tuesday.

'Iran's missile activities are for defending the country and are legitimate,' Justin Weiss said in a meeting with the Chairman of Parliament's National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Alaeddin Boroujerdi.

He called for continuation of consultations for saving the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) and noted that changing the JCPOA is not the end.

In the meantime, Boroujerdi said, 'It is necessary that the European Union as a group of powerful countries with lots of capacities adopt stronger position towards the US decisions.'

He noted that the crises in the region are the result of the US decision to change the regional states' political structure.
