Missile Program, Regional Role Upheld

Iran on Thursday dismissed claims made at a NATO summit about its missile and nuclear program and regional role, while criticizing the United States for imposing its policies on the alliance. 
"[The US] is seeking to high-handedly impose its opinion and policies on other nations, particularly European countries by applying pressure," Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qasemi said in remarks published by the ministry, ISNA reported.  
In a statement issued at a meeting in Brussels on July 11, NATO members said, "We are concerned by Iran's intensified missile tests and the range and precision of its ballistic missiles and by Iran's destabilizing activities in the wider Middle East region." 
They called on Iran to continue to fully cooperate in a timely manner with the International Atomic Energy Agency, saying, "We are committed to permanently ensuring that Iran's nuclear program remains peaceful, in line with its international obligations and commitments to never seek, develop or acquire a nuclear weapon."
