Iran has placed no order to buy Russian S400: FM Spox

Tehran, June 10, IRNA – Foreign Ministry spokesman Abbas Mousavi said in his weekly press conference on Monday that Iran does not need extra S-400 anti-missile defense system and placed no order for.

"Iranian experts have devised one system that is nothing short of the S-400 missile system," said Mousavi.

Regarding the normalization of Iran-Europe ties, he said that Tehran expected Europe to honor their commitments regardless of what they didn’t want to do or those they weren’t able to do, which is very sad."

"It is very sad that in today's civilized world, one country passes extraterritorial laws not to let other countries have free trade with each other," he said.

"It is sad that we see unilateralism in the 21st century."

Answering a question about Iran's 60-day deadline to Europe, he said, "We have not seen any special move that could persuade Iran. We hope to see Europe to take a tangible practical measure in the remaining days. If not, Iran will take the other steps with strong determination. And they know it."

Asked whether the EU hesitation means that they intend to add Iran missile program to the JCPOA, he said, "We don’t read minds but have given an answer to what the EU has declared. The JCPOA is the base and we don’t think about anything beyond that."

"Iran expects nothing but the JCPOA – not a word more or a word less," he reiterated.

Iran believes what signatories of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action should do is their commitments, and they should avoid peripheral issues.
