"Iranian experts have devised one system that is nothing short of the S-400 missile system," said Mousavi.

Regarding the normalization of Iran-Europe ties, he said that Tehran expected Europe to honor their commitments regardless of what they didn’t want to do or those they weren’t able to do, which is very sad."

"It is very sad that in today's civilized world, one country passes extraterritorial laws not to let other countries have free trade with each other," he said.

"It is sad that we see unilateralism in the 21st century."

Answering a question about Iran's 60-day deadline to Europe, he said, "We have not seen any special move that could persuade Iran. We hope to see Europe to take a tangible practical measure in the remaining days. If not, Iran will take the other steps with strong determination. And they know it."

Asked whether the EU hesitation means that they intend to add Iran missile program to the JCPOA, he said, "We don’t read minds but have given an answer to what the EU has declared. The JCPOA is the base and we don’t think about anything beyond that."
