Iran denounces new US sanctions on missile programme

Iran on Monday denounced “illegitimate” new sanctions by the United States on its ballistic missile programme, days after Tehran’s historic nuclear deal with world powers was confirmed.

“Iran’s missile programme has never been designed to be capable of carrying nuclear weapons,” foreign ministry spokesman Hossein Jaber Ansari said, according to the ISNA news agency.

He added that Tehran saw fresh economic sanctions as “illegitimate”.
