  • Iran provided capability for missile attacks from Yemen

Iran's Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qassemi said the missile program was defensive and unrelated to the 2015 nuclear deal that the country signed with the six world leaders, according to a statement published on ministry's website.

Later in the day, Macron made a surprise visit to Saudi Arabia, where he said he was "very concerned" about Iran's ballistic missile program, adding, "There are negotiations we need to start on Iran's ballistic missiles".

The United States backed the Saudi claim that the missile was supplied by Iran and urged the United Nations to hold Tehran accountable for the violation.

Eight reports by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) have confirmed Iran's full compliance with the agreement.

The United States accused Iran on Tuesday of supplying Yemen's Houthis with a missile that was sacked into Saudi Arabia, which has been leading a coalition that has been pounding the Houthi positions in Yemen for more than two and a half years in a campaign to restore the fugitive president Abd-Rabbu Mansur Hadi.

The incident is a "part of this ballistic activity of Iran in the region, which is not covered by the [nuclear] deal", Macron told the Times.

"Responsible approach would oblige France to convince its regional allies to undertake more shrewd approaches and policies free from sentimentalism", articulated Mr. Qassemi.
