MOSCOW (Sputnik) — In her address to the parliament earlier this month, Merkel, citing German security services, said that Iran continued to develop its missile program despite the UN Security Council resolution. According to her, Iran has been seeking illicit nuclear technology and equipment from German companies.
“We haven’t decided at all to supply any goods from outside the country and therefore, we have not taken any measure in this regard … The report presented by Mrs. Merkel quoting the German intelligence system is baseless, meaning that we have not intended and we have not taken any measure to supply our needed goods through an uncommon and unconventional method from Germany," Kamalvandi said, as quoted by the FARS news agency.
According to him, the claims made in the report are “merely incorrect speculations.”
In July 2015, Tehran and six international mediators reached a historic deal which guarantees the peaceful nature of its nuclear program in exchange for the gradual lifting of anti-Iran sanctions, which were imposed over fears that Iran was developing nuclear weapons.
