The official further said the Iranian nation has an inalienable right to develop its missile might, which serves as a deterrent in the face of threats, stressing that the country's defense capabilities are not up for negotiations.
The signing of fresh anti-Iran sanctions by Trump is an attempt to destroy the JCOPA, Araqchi, who is also Iran's senior nuclear negotiator, said.
He urged USA statesmen to work toward settling the numerous crises which exist in their country rather than playing a blame game and taking anti-Iran actions.
