The President stressed that missiles are one of Iran’s needs, and Iran would manufacture whatever it needs without paying any attention to others’ remarks.




On Monday, Rouhani said that Iran would continue test of its missiles anytime if there was a “technical need”, and it would not seek the permission of any other country to do so.

“Our missiles are for defence and peace,” Rouhani said, adding that the US expectation from Iran to halt its defensive missile programme is “an illusion.”
