Iran will continue building missiles, Rouhani says

Tehran: Iran’s missile program is not in breach of its nuclear deal and will continue despite objections from the United States, President Hassan Rouhani said.
Earlier this month, US President Donald Trump announced that he would no longer make regular certifications that the lifting of sanctions under the deal known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPoA) had been in US interests.
But Sunday Rouhani in a speech said Iran had fulfilled its obligations on the nuclear issue and had the right to defend itself. “We will build, produce and store any weapon of any kind we need to defend ourselves, our territorial integrity and our nation, and we will not hesitate about it,” he said.
“Understand that we have been building missiles, and will continue to do so and this does not contradict any of international laws and it is not in conflict with Resolution 2231.
