Iranian officials have repeatedly said that the country's missile and nuclear programs are intended for defensive purposes and are non-negotiable as they are "for peaceful purposes".
"Annihilation of the U.S. and Europe's nuclear weapons and long-range missiles is the prerequisite for negotiations on Iran's missiles", Jazzayeri said.
Kamalvandi said from Iran's standpoint, the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) nuclear deal signed in July 2015 between Iran and the P5+1 (five permanent members of the United Nations Security Council plus the European Union) could not be re-negotiated as is demanded by the United States.
For his part, the Iranian foreign minister praised France and other European sides' principled stance towards the JCPOA but at the same time criticized some European officials for their remarks about and behaviours towards the nuclear deal and also being swayed by the USA when it comes to the JCPOA.
His comments came after Le Drian's controversial comments about Iran's missile program ahead of his trip to Tehran.
The French embassy had earlier said in a statement that an exhibition called "The Louvre in Tehran" will be held at the National Museum of Iran between March 5 and June 8 and inaugurated by Le Drian and Louvre's president Jean-Luc Martinez.

As mentioned in a quarterly IAEA report on Iran last month, Amano said in his speech that the agency had requested clarification from Iran about its plans for nuclear-powered naval vessels, suggesting the IAEA has still not heard back from the Islamic Republic. On the eve of Le Drian's visit, Macron told Rouhani by phone that France expects Iran to make a "constructive contribution" to solving crises in the region.
The two countries are also at odds over Iran's involvement in the Syria conflict.
Le Drian said that France is determined to implement and protect the nuclear deal. "We have our own concerns and will talk to the different sensibilities of the Iranian system to get our point across".
While this might be perceived by many to be a good solution to rein in Iran's nuclear program, it can only work as a short-term fix, one that will merely freeze, but not end its nuclear ambitions.
Britain, France and Germany are reportedly working with United States officials to draw up a strategy to "improve" the Iran nuclear deal in return for Trump keeping the pact alive.
