His comments came after French President Emmanuel Macron urged firmness with Iran regarding its missile program and influence in the Middle East, in an interview with the United Arab Emirates-based al-Ittihad newspaper.

"We have repeatedly told French officials that the JCPOA (the nuclear agreement, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action) is not negotiable and other issues will not be included in it", Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qassemi said on Saturday.

The French head of state has made efforts to preserve the deal, telling Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, last month, that France remained committed to the deal while stressing the need for dialogue.

"Meanwhile, France is fully aware of Iran's firm stance towards its defense capabilities, viewing it as non-negotiable", Foreign Ministry's official website quoted him as saying.

"The missile that was intercepted by Saudi Arabia launched from Yemen, which obviously is an Iranian missile, shows precisely the strength of their" weapons program, Macron said on November 9.

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.

Paris is a signatory to the Iran nuclear deal, which was also signed by five other major powers, namely the US, Britain, Russia and China plus Germany, to roll back Tehran's nuclear program in return for easing the worldwide sanctions.

Iran has denied any involvement in the missile attack while calling the Saudi accusations "false, destructive, irresponsible and, above all, provocative". The missile had been fired by Yemen's Houthi Ansarullah movement, which has been defending the impoverished country against a deadly Saudi-led invasion since March 2015.

The Saudis are in full support of President Trump's decision not to certify Iran as in compliance with Obama's treacherous "deal".
