  • French Foreign Minister Arrives in Tehran Amid Row Over Ballistic Missile Program

His statements have not been warmly received in Iran, with Zarif telling Monday's reformist Etemad newspaper: "In order to keep the United States in the Iran nuclear deal, European countries are suffering from extremism and this will ultimately undermine Europe's policy".

The head of the Vienna-based International Atomic Energy Agency said Monday that "Iran is implementing its nuclear related commitments" and that "it is essential that Iran continues to do so".

Netanyahu said the rest of the world should consider how Iran will act if it acquires an atomic arsenal, in light of its current destabilizing actions in the region.

As mentioned by the confidential IAEA report, Amano also said the agency had requested clarification from Iran about its plans for nuclear-powered naval vessels, suggesting the IAEA has still not heard back from the Islamic Republic.

Iran has long said publicly that it intends to develop nuclear propulsion for naval vessels, though analysts and diplomats say this remains a distant prospect.

France, the U.S. and the United Nations say Iran supplies ballistic missile technology to Houthi rebels in Yemen, who have fired the weapons into Saudi Arabia.

The remarks came as French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian, who is on an official visit to Tehran, threatened ahead of the visit that Iran needed to address worldwide concerns over its ballistic missile program or it risked new sanctions.

Merkel welcomes centre-left's OK for coalition
German Chancellor Angela Merkel's conservatives have formed a coalition government with the opposition Social Democrats. However, the new "Grand Coalition" will also make the AfD the largest opposition party in the Bundestag.

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif told his French counterpart it's vitally important that the United States not abandon the Obama-era deal, which lifts Iranian sanctions in exchange for limits on Tehran's nuclear program.

The prime minister said those problems need to be addressed, though he stressed that that "did not necessarily mean altering the JCPOA, but changing the situation", a reference to his call on world powers to contain Iranian aggression beyond the confines of the deal.

Trump has threatened to scuttle the 2015 Iranian nuclear deal unless amendments are made to it.

In the meantime, the secretary of Iran's Supreme National Security Council Ali Shamkhani on Monday urged the European countries not to bend under the U.S.

For his part, Le Drian hailed Iran's commitment to the JCPOA, saying that France insists on the full implementation of the deal.

"We want to preserve the nuclear deal because it is working, it's robust and because the Iranians are respecting it", his team told AFP ahead of the visit.

"Any move to undermine the JCPOA would result in the loss of credibility of other global agreements", said Shamkhani.
